Breast Cancer Research Trust
Research for the best outcomes
Breast cancer forever changes the lives of the patient and those around them.
The Breast Cancer Research Trust team works to gain knowledge, save lives, improve outcomes and the quality of life for those diagnosed with breast cancer.
Evidence-based breast cancer research improves outcomes
Our research team works collaboratively with international and local research groups, providing New Zealand women with access to improved surgical, radiotherapy and drug treatments, reduced side-effects, better communication and better quality of life.
