• #### Evidence that breast cancer risk at the 2q35 locus is mediated through IGFBP5 regulation ﻿

(NPG, 2014-09-23)
GWAS have identified a breast cancer susceptibility locus on 2q35. Here we report the fine-mapping of this locus using data from 101,943 subjects from 50 case-control studies. We genotype 276 SNPs using the “iCOGS” genotyping ...
• #### Fine scale mapping of the 5q11.2 breast cancer locus reveals at least three independent risk variants regulating MAP3K1 ﻿

(Cell/Elsevier, 18/12/2014)
Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) revealed SNP rs889312 on 5q11.2 to be associated with breast cancer risk in women of European ancestry. In an attempt to identify the biologically relevant variants, we analysed 909 ...
• #### Fine scale mapping of the 5q11.2 breast cancer locus reveals at least three independent risk variants regulating MAP3K1. ﻿

• #### Functional Mechanisms Underlying Pleiotropic Risk Alleles at the 19p13.1 Breast-Ovarian Cancer Susceptibility Locus ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
A locus at 19p13 is associated with breast cancer (BC) and ovarian cancer (OC) risk. We analyzed 438 SNPs in this region in 46,451 BC and 15,438 OC cases, 15,252 BRCA1 mutation carriers and 73,444 controls and identified ...
• #### Genetic variation in the immunosuppression pathway genes and breast cancer: a pooled analysis of 42,510 cases and 40,577 controls from the Breast ﻿

(Springer, 2015-11-30)
Immunosuppression plays a pivotal role in assisting tumors to evade immune destruction and promoting tumor development. We hypothesized that genetic variation in the immunosuppression pathway genes may be implicated in ...
• #### Genome-wide association analysis of more than 120,000 individuals identifies 15 new susceptibility loci for breast cancer. ﻿

(NPG, 2015-03-09)
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and large-scale replication studies have identified common variants in 79 loci associated with breast cancer, explaining ~14% of the familial risk of the disease. To identify new ...
• #### Identification and characterisation of novel associations in the CASP8/ALS2CR12 region on chromosome 2 with breast cancer risk ﻿

(Oxford University Press, 2014-08-28)
Previous studies have suggested that polymorphisms in CASP8 on chromosome 2 are associated with breast cancer risk. To clarify the role of CASP8 in breast cancer susceptibility we carried out dense genotyping of this region ...
• #### Identification of four novel susceptibility loci for estrogen receptor negative breast cancer ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
Common variants in 94 loci have been associated with breast cancer including 15 loci with genome wide significant associations (P<5x10-8) with estrogen receptor (ER)-negative breast cancer and BRCA1-associated breast cancer ...
• #### Identification of four novel susceptibility loci for oestrogen receptor negative breast cancer ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-04-27)
Common variants in 94 loci have been associated with breast cancer including 15 loci with genome-wide significant associations (P<5 × 10$^{−8}$) with oestrogen receptor (ER)-negative breast cancer and BRCA1-associated ...
• #### Identification of Novel Genetic Markers of Breast Cancer Survival ﻿

(Oxford Journals, 2015-04-18)
Background: Survival after a diagnosis of breast cancer varies considerably between patients, and some of this variation may be because of germline genetic variation. We aimed to identify genetic markers associated with ...
