AutoNation and racing champion, Ryan Hunter-Reay, endowed NSU’s AutoNation Institute for Breast Cancer Research and Care which is focused on developing microRNA drugs to address treatment resistance and reducing environmental risks of breast cancer by addressing ancestry-specific vulnerabilities. In addition we are developing new biomarkers to predict which early stage tumors will recur in the context of Nucleotide Excision Repair. The ultimate goal is translating the discoveries from the lab into clinical progress at the bedside.
NSU’s AutoNation Institute for Breast Cancer Research and Care is housed in the university’s Center for Collaborative Research (CCR), one of the largest (215,000 sq. ft.) and most advanced research facilities in Florida, with state-of-the-art laboratories.
