MEET DR. APARICIO, MOLECULAR ONCOLOGIST


Dr. Samuel Aparicio is the Head of Breast and Molecular Oncology at the BC Cancer Agency and UBC. He and his research team are part of the Stand Up to Cancer Canada-Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Dream Team, supported by CIBC. The Canada-wide Dream Team is discovering new information about the biology of triple-negative breast cancer and finding new ways forward in treating the disease.
 
“We’re in this to gain understanding so that we can help women in the future not have to suffer from the fear of breast cancer and to be able to prevent, treat, diagnose and manage breast cancer in a way that’s more effective,” expressed Dr. Aparicio. “It’s just very exciting when we see a way forward that perhaps hasn’t been seen before. Those are the things we get up for in the morning.”
 
Get involved and contribute to research such as Dr. Aparicio’s work by purchasing our Lifeguard Gift for the Cure. With this Gift you will also receive a one year subscription to LifeguardMobile™, an online healthcare management app for you or someone you love to help manage a busy medical schedule.
