Immunotherapies for Breast Cancer

Project's result

I wrote a research paper on immunotherapies for breast cancer.

They started it from zero. Are you ready to level up with us?

Summary

Breast cancer affects around 1 in 3 women, making it the second most common cancer in females after skin cancer. Despite advancements in traditional treatment options such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, many patients still suffer from disease recurrence and progression. This has led to an increasing interest in alternative approaches, such as immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the body's own immune system to fight cancer. This research paper highlights the growing importance of immunotherapy in the treatment of breast cancer and emphasizes the need for further research and clinical trials to fully understand its potential. While immunotherapy is still early in its development, especially for breast cancer, lots of research suggests that it holds promise as a safe and effective treatment option for patients who have not responded to traditional treatments or who have advanced-stage disease.

Project review

“I had high expectations for this program and I'm happy to say that all of them were met! My mentor was really helpful and flexible and I feel like my writing and research skills have both been greatly improved.”

About my mentor

“Like I said before, she was really flexible and understanding if I needed more time to work or if I needed to reschedule a meeting. She gave good feedback and was patient with me throughout the entire process. I really enjoyed working with her!”
