The Basser Center for BRCA is raising awareness about hereditary cancer through our #INVISIBLEGENES social media campaign and we need your help! The traits we inherit from our family define and connect us in countless ways. Sometimes these traits are obvious, like curly hair or dimples. But sometimes what we inherit remains hidden, like BRCA gene mutations which can increase your risk for developing certain type of cancers.

2017 marks an important milestone for the Basser Center for BRCA: it’s our five year anniversary as the first comprehensive center and global hub for the research, treatment, and prevention of BRCA-related cancers. Our unique model includes a devotion to advancing care for people affected by BRCA gene mutations, as well as providing funding for collaborative research, education, and outreach programs around the world. And in the last five years, our mission has come a long way.
