The MBCProject: Help Transform Our Understanding of Metastatic Breast Cancer

The Metastatic Breast Cancer Project ( is a new research project launched by the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute that directly engages patients with metastatic breast cancer - and empowers them to accelerate research by sharing their samples and clinical information. The goal is simple: to create a patient-researcher partnership to speed discoveries and the development of new treatments for metastatic breast cancer.

Patients with metastatic breast cancer can sign up for the project by visiting, clicking "Count Me In" and entering their name and email address. There is no cost to participate and only minimal effort is required to have a major impact. Since their launch in October of 2015, over 2,500 women and men with metastatic breast cancer have joined the study. The project was designed and implemented with the input of dozens of metastatic breast cancer patients, advocates, and advocacy organizations - and continues to actively engage the metastatic breast cancer community at every step.

We hope you will visit, consider joining if you are living with metastatic breast cancer, and share this exciting project with others.
