Biology professor Nancy Krucher, PhD, understands the transformative power of research. She’s a pioneer in the fight against breast cancer, and she’s just received a three-year $400,241 grant from the National Cancer Institute through the National Institutes of Health to study new methods to combat cancer cell development of resistance to targeted treatments.
