Breakthroughs in Breast and Ovarian Cancer

HudsonAlpha is committed to the goal of using genomic science and state-of-the-art technology to find new breakthroughs in breast and ovarian cancers. Through collaborations with scientists around the nation, this team is working to find biomarkers that lead to earlier, more accurate diagnoses and new pathways for more effective and targeted treatments. Breast and ovarian cancers are complicated diseases but through the power of genomic science and medicine, HudsonAlpha is working to find answers that make a difference. Each day we strive to find new breakthroughs that will bring health, healing and hope to our mothers, wives, sisters and daughters.

Information is Power

Since 2015, HudsonAlpha, in collaboration with Kailos Genetics, has offered a groundbreaking genetic testing program called Information is Power for members of the Huntsville/ Madison County community. This program provides genetic testing for the well-known BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, as well as several dozen other genes linked to breast, ovarian, colon, prostate, pancreatic, and other cancers. To date, more than 5,000 people have taken the genetic test and now have more power over their own health decisions. Thank you to the Russell Hill Cancer Foundation as well as our other community partners and supporters for making this program possible.

Proceeds from the event benefit HudsonAlpha’s breast and ovarian cancer programs, part of the Scientific Advancement Fund.
