Cancer associated with aging
Cancer is an age-related disease.
Our focus is aging
Our risk of cancer increases significantly after age 50, and half of all cancers occur at age 66 and above. Buck scientists are studying aging processes linked to cancer and are developing treatments to prevent or treat cancers, with a special emphasis on breast cancer. Our expertise ranges from the lab bench to the bedside. We are even studying the impact of chemotherapy as a driver of secondary cancers.
