Infrastructure for Research in Equity, Aging, Cancer and Health

I-REACH brings together the accumulated expertise of four cancer center hubs (Georgetown University, University of Maryland, UCLA, and Karmanos/Wayne State University), national leaders and numerous stakeholders to expand the diversity of the scientific workforce at the intersection of aging, disparities and cancer. I-REACH will support accelerated discoveries to design, deliver and evaluate interventions to guide clinical care to improve the health of the growing population and reduce health disparities among older minority cancer survivors.

Thinking and Living with Cancer (TLC) Study

The goal of the TLC Study is to evaluate the impact of systemic therapy on the mind (“cognition”) in older breast cancer patients. We enroll women over 60 who have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, as well as healthy controls. This study is being done nationally, with recruiting sites at Georgetown University, Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Moffitt Cancer Center, and Indiana University.
