    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.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
