Scrutinizing Breast Cancer

If you wanted to know everything about breast cancer, where would you begin? As with many cancers, there is too much complexity to select a single aspect, such as genomics, tissue profiling, clinical history… A truly comprehensive study must capture every facet of the disease – and that’s the aim of the FLEX breast cancer registry. The survey is a prospective, observational study that combines full-genome profiling with clinical data. It seeks to enroll 10,000 patients with stage I, II, or III breast cancer and follow them over the course of a decade.

About the Author

Michael Schubert

While obtaining degrees in biology from the University of Alberta and biochemistry from Penn State College of Medicine, I worked as a freelance science and medical writer. I was able to hone my skills in research, presentation and scientific writing by assembling grants and journal articles, speaking at international conferences, and consulting on topics ranging from medical education to comic book science. As much as I’ve enjoyed designing new bacteria and plausible superheroes, though, I’m more pleased than ever to be at Texere, using my writing and editing skills to create great content for a professional audience.
