    About This Project

    Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) has long been associated with high mortality rates and a poor prognosis due to the lack of targeted therapy. Often referred to as an "untreatable" disease, there is a need for a fresh perspective and novel treatments. Natural compounds (existing chemical compounds in nature) isolated from Papua New Guinea may provide increased sensitization of the cancer cells to common chemotherapeutic regimens.
