The Metastatic Breast Cancer Project takes a new approach to cancer research in which researchers partner directly with patients, who share their stories, samples, and clinical information in order speed discoveries and the development of new treatment strategies. Launched in October 2015, to date over 4,000 women and men have said “Count Me In.” All data generated by the MBCproject will be on publicly accessible platforms, enabling as many research scientists as possible to make discoveries in order to accelerate our understanding of metastatic breast cancer.
