Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center Receives $25 Million Gift for Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Research

Dr. Lisa Carey, a long-time partner of CBCS, has been named the director of a new research core in Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, which was made possible by an incredibly generous, anonymous gift. CBCS was first to identify how triple-negative breast cancer disproportionately affect young Black women, and it is a wonderful development to see our epidemiological research lead to increased focus on this troublesome subtype of breast cancer.
