Fundo iMM-Laço

In 2015 the Fundo iMM-Laço: On the Way to a Cure was created to support breast cancer research projects and bring hope to thousands of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer every year.

Currently, there are four ongoing projects at iMM Lisboa supported by Fundo iMM-Laço: On the Way to a Cure. Two of these projects investigate the immune system and its role in the inhibition of tumor growth and metastases formation and how it can inihibit tumoral progression. Two other projects investigate tumor genetics: one tries to understand what leads tumors to metastasize in the bone and the other focuses on the genetic analysis of tumor cells to predict their response to chemotherapy in women with early stage breast cancer, as well as identify which types of tumors have a higher level of metastatic risk. Every year, 3 new projects will be chosen to receive Fundo iMM-Laço grants. 

The goal of all the projects supported by the Fundo is to understand the underlying causes of breast cancer in order to lower its incidence, provide more effective treatments and discover the mechanisms that lead to metastatic breast cancer.
