Support HudsonAlpha’s Breakthrough Breast and Ovarian Cancer Research Team

This group of scientists is committed to the goal of using genomic science and HudsonAlpha’s state-of-the-art technology to find new breakthroughs in breast and ovarian cancers. Through collaborations with scientists around the nation, this team is working to find biomarkers that lead to earlier, more accurate diagnoses and new pathways for more effective and targeted treatments. Breast and ovarian cancers are complicated diseases but through the power of genomic science and medicine, HudsonAlpha is working to find answers that make a difference. Each day we strive to find new breakthroughs that will bring health, healing, and hope to our mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters.


Information is Power

At last year’s Tie the Ribbons Luncheon, HudsonAlpha, in collaboration with Kailos Genetics, introduced a groundbreaking genetic testing program called       “Information is Power” for members of the Huntsville/ Madison County community. This program provides genetic testing for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes associated with breast and ovarian cancer as well as a set of genes that can predict possible increased disease risk.

To date, more than 1,000 people have taken the genetic test and now have more power over their own health decisions. At this year’s Tie the Ribbons, we’ll share what so many people throughout our community have learned from this program.

Registration will open soon!


Proceeds will benefit breast and ovarian cancer research within the Scientific Advancement Fund at HudsonAlpha.
