University of Maryland and The Cancer Institute of New Jersey Partner on $1.6 M NIH Grant
Dr. Jaydev P. Desai, Director - Robotics, Automation, and Medical Systems (RAMS) Laboratory and Dr. David J. Foran, Director – Center for Biomedical Imaging & Informatics, The Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ), will lead a cross-disciplinary team of researchers in a 5 year, $1.6M project to develop new approaches and technologies to provide new insight regarding the underlying mechanisms associated with disease onset and progression in breast cancer, not available using traditional assessment techniques. Breast cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed types of cancer among women. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer cases are expected to occur among women and 2,190 among men in the United States in 2012. They estimate that breast cancer, among women, will account for about 29 percent of all new cancer cases in 2012, the highest of any other type of cancer diagnosed.
