Four Queen's researchers receive funding from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) is providing over $1 million in funding to four Queen's University researchers who are investigating different aspects of breast cancer including testing, metastasis and the immune system.

Peter Greer (Pathology and Molecular Medicine) has received $450,000 over three years. Dr. Greer's research explores interactions between cancer cells and the immune system. He is working to coax the immune system back into action and stimulate cancer immunity against invading cancer cells using oncolytic viruses.
