Announcing the Ovarian Cancer Dream Team!

The Ovarian Cancer Dream Team has been chosen! We wanted to be sure our community is among the first to know about the research project that was selected. This research could have a tremendous impact on ovarian cancer treatment--we can't wait to see how it progresses!

The Dream Team will focus on “DNA Repair Therapies for Ovarian Cancer,” building on recent advances that have identified DNA repair as a common weakness in ovarian cancer. Researchers will also explore the prevention and early detection of ovarian cancer by developing a web-based approach to genetic testing and counseling. Dream Team researchers hope to offer women identified as genetically high risk a choice of surgical options, including one that removes the fallopian tubes but spares the ovaries. The Dream Team grant will provide funding over a three-year period, starting in July 2015.
