The goal of the proposed work was to develop a strategy for screening for novel EGFR inhibitors that may be useful for the treatment of triple-negative breast cancers. The grant application was not funded. No reason was given, but the agency indicated that they would like to see us (Auburn University) apply for funding in the future.

This is disappointing. However, we believe that the goal has merit and we are revamping this proposal for submission to the National Institutes of Health/National Cancer Institute (NIH/NCI) and the Department of Defense (DoD) Breast Cancer Research Program (BCRP).
