Joni Gladowsky Breast Cancer Foundation funds CSHL's innovative breast cancer research
Date:1/10/2008

Cold Spring Harbor, NY Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) today announced that CSHL researcher Senthil Muthuswamy, Ph.D., received two grants totaling over $32,000 from the Joni Gladowsky Breast Cancer Foundation to further the development of alternative breast cancer treatment strategies. Dr. Muthuswamys innovative approach looks at tissue architecture changes in pre-cancerous breast tissue to better understand early cellular and molecular events in breast cancer with the hope of developing strategies to control breast cancer in its earliest stages.

Though not all early benign breast lesions develop into malignant cancers, women with these lesions have an increased risk of developing invasive breast cancer. Dr. Muthuswamy is using novel methods to understand and identify the genetic differences of lesions that remain benign and those that become cancerous, increasing the odds of finding a way to prevent the development of this cancer.

Our research has discovered new pathways for understanding breast cancer development, Dr. Muthuswamy said. With the financial support of the Gladowsky Foundation, we can explore these pathways further, and identify new pathways leading to cancer, which gives us a better chance to find a way to stop precancer from progressing to a metastatic disease.

The Foundation wanted to work with a local organization on Long Island and considered Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, said Jason Gladowsky, Jonis son. After learning about this wonderful institution and the impressive breast cancer research taking place here, we immediately decided to support their efforts.

Established in 2002, the Dix Hills-based foundation is co-chaired by Gladowsky and his sister, Alison Deblinger, who said, Weve worked with other organizations, but were really impressed with the commitment of the scientists at the Laboratory to further the cause of finding a cure for breast cancer.

The Foundation is planning a July 2
