October is breast cancer awareness month

Saving lives, one innovation at a time

According to the World Health Organization, breast cancer takes the lives of over 1700 women and men around the world every single day. But survival rates are increasing, thanks to increased awareness and the innovative work of researchers like you, who help develop earlier detection methods and improved treatment strategies.

For this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’ve collected some of our recent breast-cancer related webinars, application notes, videos and other resources. Read on and discover how optimized solutions from QIAGEN can accelerate your innovations and help you make a difference faster.



Webinar: Evaluation of multiple liquid biopsy analytes in metastatic breast cancer patients all from one blood sample (ELIMA study)

Dr. Sabine Kasimir-Bauer, Associate Professor at the University Hospital of Essen, Germany, discusses the value of multimodality approaches in liquid biopsy and how to achieve a more complete picture of liquid biopsies by analyzing circulating tumor cells, extracellular vesicles and cell-free DNA in parallel.



Webinar: Plan your next experiment using GeneGlobe – streamlining a breast cancer research planning workflow

Dr. Verena Schramm, Associate Director, GeneGlobe, shows how the GeneGlobe Design & Analysis Hub can simplify your experiment planning by connecting biological knowledge on your targets with relevant products and tools. She uses an example breast cancer research planning workflow to demonstrate a variety of GeneGlobe functionalities.



Quick demo: See how to use GeneGlobe in your research planning

This short video tutorial shows how to use GeneGlobe to explore and gather biological knowledge while building a hypothesis in breast cancer research. We show how to explore pathway information, compile a list of candidate genes and create a custom NGS panel to analyze these genes.
