“Treating breast cancer when a tumor is small can save a woman’s life, which is why I am strongly drawn to breast imaging. We have pioneered high-risk screening with MRI”
– Dr. Morris
Dr. Morris’ research focuses on how best to use newer techniques to detect breast cancer early and to assess whether treatment is working. In collaboration with my colleagues, I have written many papers, chapters and books about breast disease. We have published studies on using new techniques such as MRI for screening women at a high risk of cancer as well as monitoring the treatment of a known breast cancer.
Susan G. Komen’s Commitment to Research
Since 1982, Susan G. Komen has funded more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit outside of the U.S. government — $988 million to date. The combination of science, education and direct help to people facing breast cancer has led to a 40 percent decline in mortality between 1989-2016.
