About the book

Worldwide, breast cancer is the most frequent invasive cancer among women, impacting over two million women each year, and also causes the maximum number of cancer-related deaths among women. The incidence of breast cancer varies greatly around the world. While breast cancer rates are higher among women in more developed regions, rates are increasing in nearly every region globally. Researchers and clinicians around the world are working to find better ways to prevent, detect, and treat breast cancer, and to improve the quality of life of patients and survivors. In recent years, there is substantial amount of development in the area of breast cancer research and its clinical applications, for instance breast cancer biology and genomics; epidemiology and prevention; early detection and screening; as well as diagnosis and treatment. In addition, since the advent of various emerging technologies, such as stem cell technology, genome editing technology, bionanotechnology, as well as tissue engineering and regenerative medicine-and the knowledge gained from such studies not only enhanced our understanding of breast cancer but also produced novel insights that could lead to the development and deployment of newer clinical/therapeutic interventions.

Therefore, the purpose of this book is to consolidate the recent advances in area of breast cancer biology/therapeutics covering a broad-spectrum of interrelated topics in a timely fashion, and to disseminate that knowledge in a comprehensible way to a great scientific and clinical audience.

About the editor

Mani T. Valarmathi

The University of Alabama at Birmingham

Mani T. Valarmathi is presently an assistant professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA. He began his scientific career as a cancer geneticist, but soon became captivated with the emerging and translational fields of stem cell biology, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine. After completing his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry at the University of Madras, he received his MBBS in Medicine and Surgery and MD in Pathology from the University of Madras, as well as his PhD in Medical Biotechnology from All-India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India. For over 15 years, he has had extensive experience in research on various types of stem cells, including adult, embryonic (pluripotent), and induced pluripotent stem cells. Currently, his research work focuses on generating three-dimensional vascularized tissues and/or organs for implantation purposes. He is a member of many prestigious national and international professional societies and scientific organizations, such as ISSCR, TERMIS, AACR, ASIP, ACS, ESC, ISHR, ASGCT, and AHA.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Mia Vulovic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
