Summary of key aims

The Programme's aim is to improve research in breast cancer research and to decrease the deficits in this research field in Germany. Especially clinical and epidemiological studies on urgent care and practice-related questions are funded, particularly in the fields of epidemiological research into causes and clinical epidemiology, validation and improvement of the methods of early recognition and diagnosis; therapy optimisation studies as well as comparative studies. Furthermore the validation of postoperative care procedures to ensure optimal aftercare and support for patients (with an emphasis on the quality of life and on social psychology as well as psychosocial aspects) is also funded.

The funding measure was intimated by the BMBF in 2002. BMBF funds the programme with 6 million Euro. The programme runs for 4 years with the possibility to elongate research for further 3 years.
