    Research Interests
    Dr. Helsten focuses first and foremost on providing excellent care for breast cancer patients. She provides neoadjuvant, adjuvant, and metastatic treatments, including endocrine therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapies. She actively enrolls patients to clinical trials.

    Dr. Helsten’s research is primarily focused on clinical trials chosen to bring the most cutting edge care to her patients. She runs several clinical trials and enrolls patients to these and cooperative group and investigator initiated trials at UCSD. She is a coinvestigator of the groundbreaking I-SPY 2 study (www.ispy2.org). She is actively engaged in the design and implementation of translational research projects in breast cancer. FGFR inhibitors are of particular interest.
