PhD Student studying the complexity of breast cancer to try and impact treatment.
About one in eight Canadian women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. But how their cancer progresses can depend on what types of cells their tumour is made of.
Jingping Qiao is a PhD student at the University of Toronto based in OICR’s Computational Biology Program. She is studying the complex molecular makeup of breast cancer tumours in the hopes of finding better ways to diagnose and treat them.
“I hope my project helps clinicians make more informed decisions that lead to more personalized treatment plans that offer better outcomes,” Qiao says.
