SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation announced today the launch of ImPatient Science™, a new program of videos that explain the latest advances in the science of breast cancer, breakthroughs in treatments, and innovative research that can eradicate the disease.

When the NFL is wearing pink, we have achieved awareness! The majority of women today are aware of breast cancer from an early age, and there are countless resources available that provide basic information about the disease. However, patients and family members/caregivers can become lost and overwhelmed by the complex scientific information about breast cancer and its treatments.

ImPatient Science builds on a core skill of the Foundation, the ability to translate complex science on the biology of breast cancer, the body's immune system, and the variety of treatment options.

"The science is not really that complicated, once it is translated," said Dr. Susan Love, chief visionary officer of the Foundation. "This program will inform, engage, and empower patients, caregivers, and the public – with digestible videos and clear explanations allowing them to feel secure that they understand their treatments and options."

ImPatient Science's program topics include: The Biology of Breast Cancer; The Immune System and Breast Cancer (coming soon); Breast Cancer Treatments: Understanding your Options; and Metastatic Disease. The program will also feature online resources and interactive opportunities. All content will be available through the Foundation's website and e-marketing channels.

"ImPatient Science signifies the next step in the Foundation's long-standing commitment to conducting innovative, scientific research and providing accessible information that deepen knowledge, inspire dialogue – and promote a future without breast cancer," said Dr. Love.
