Dear colleagues and friends,
Breast Cancer Awareness Month—an annual October campaign to raise awareness about the most common cancer for women worldwide—is drawing to a close. However, SBP's fight against breast cancer continues.
At our NCI-designated Cancer Center, SBP researchers are pursuing the most advanced approaches to understand and treat the disease, including immunotherapies, predictive diagnostics and personalized medicines that will improve the lives of people with breast cancer.
In this issue, we highlight SBP Insights—an event designed to educate the community about the path from research to breast cancer treatment breakthroughs. We also share other important discoveries made by SBP scientists in genetic and infectious diseases.
We hope you will join us at several upcoming events, including our fundraising gala, which provides critical support for our biomedical research. In November, we will open our doors for a behind-the-scenes look at our Cancer Center. And, we invite you to register for Padres Pedal the Cause, a one-day event that raises funds for cancer research in San Diego.
I hope you enjoy this issue.
