Avon Foundation Grant supports Breast Cancer Research

The Avon Foundation for Women has again awarded the Clemson University Institute for Biological Interfaces of Engineering a grant for medical research. The institute will receive $150,000 from the foundation to develop an easy-to-use diagnostic test that can both predict breast cancer risk and monitor changes in breast cancer over time. Clemson is one of six universities or hospitals to receive grants from the foundation. The recipients were named in Charlotte following this year’s Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, which raised $1.65 million to advance access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer.
