The first Susan G. Komen research grant in Michigan was awarded in 1995. Since then, Michigan has seen 86 total research grants with 12 currently active. Those 12 active grants total over $7,700,000. Total, there has been over $25,200,000 in research funding in the state of Michigan.
In 2011, Komen granted $3.5 million to three Michigan research sites: the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center in Ann Arbor, the Van Andel Research Institute in Grand Rapids and the Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit. This grant is being used to target stem cells in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) in different racial populations.
