BRECT - Breast Cancer Theme Center
The Breast Cancer Theme Center (BRECT) provides a platform for interactions and collaborations in breast cancer research at Karolinska Institutet. BRECT is open for all researchers at KI within the breast cancer field.
We aim to increase our understanding of critical steps in breast cancer development and therapy. The research span from basic studies using cell lines, animal models and patient biopsies, to prospective clinical studies and clinical trials, with the ultimate goal to improve breast cancer therapy and disease outcome.
To provide education and networking in breast cancer research, BRECT regularly organizes retreats, mini-symposia and seminars with a mix of invited internationally leading researchers and presentations from researchers at KI.
