A true visionary, Dr. Love’s  notable projects include the Love Research Army, a creative internet solution partnering women and scientists with the goal of accelerating breast cancer research. In October 2012, the Foundation launched the Health of Women [HOW] Study™, an online cohort study with the goal of identifying the cause of breast cancer.

In June of 2012, Dr. Love was diagnosed with leukemia and underwent chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant. She returned to work in January of 2013 more determined than ever to find the cause of cancer and end it once and for all.

Dr. Love is a Clinical Professor of Surgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and lectures nationally and internationally on breast cancer, menopause, and women’s health. She has been awarded six honorary doctorate degrees, as well as numerous honors and citations. She also has a business degree from the Executive MBA Program at UCLA’s Anderson School.

Dr. Love received her medical degree from SUNY Downstate Medical Center in New York and did her surgical training at Boston’s Beth Israel Hospital. She has retired from the active practice of surgery to dedicate herself to the urgent work of breast cancer prevention.

Love Research Army

We combat the disparities that exist in research by challenging the scientific community to launch studies that are as inclusive and diverse as the people that breast cancer affects.
