The National Cancer Institute has awarded a major grant to an Arizona State University professor. The grant is part of a new initiative to profile tumors before they become cancerous.
ASU associate professor, Carlo Maley was awarded $10.8 million.
The money will go toward developing a Breast Pre-Cancer Atlas, designed to be an active source of information on breast tumors. Maley said researchers will study different tumors to determine how they become cancerous.
