This work was supported in part by a Translational Team Science Award to Xian Chen, PhD and Kristalyn Gallagher, DO titled, "Proteogenomic discovery of patient-specific, phenotypic markers for early diagnosis of invasive lobular carcinoma." The Translational Team Science Award is a partnership between the UNC School of Medicine Office of Research and NC TraCS.
