BCRF Announces Tragic Loss of Researcher Dr. Arti Hurria

The BCRF community mourns the sudden loss of a dear friend and colleague, Dr. Robert Comis, MD, FASCO, Professor of Medicine at Drexel University, Group Co-Chair of the ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group and President and Chairman of the Coalition of Cancer Cooperative Groups (CCCG).  

Metastasis occurs when cancer cells break away from a tumor and travel to distant parts of the body—the most dreaded event for a cancer patient. It is a mystery why some cells are able to travel through the body while others are not.

Dr. Park’s research at Johns Hopkins focuses on finding mutated or altered genes responsible for breast cancer initiation and growth or resistance to anti-cancer drugs.
