The Clinical Breast Care Project (CBCP) is a truly translational research center of excellence where there is direct communication between the clinical and research components of the project. The Breast Center at Walter Reed Army Medical Center has a chief nurse, a nurse practitioner, research nurses, a surgical technician and a receptionist who staff the clinic. Our research nurses provide comprehensive care to our patients to guide them through the treatment process. In addition, the project has a full time, dedicated pathologist and a full time pathology assistant responsible for the collection and in depth analysis of tissue and serum specimens donated by our patients.
We collect clinical data as well from our patients who participate in our research. That data is carefully collected by our research nurses and then meticulously reviewed by data managers who make sure each field of data is complete. A biomedical informatics coordinator heads the data management team and helps coordinate the many projects involving data analysis we pursue each year.
Our Administrative staff consists of a director, a budget analyst, and an administrative assistant. You can learn more about our scientific staff by returning to the home page and clicking on the Windber research Institute.
