Experience and Inspiration
Over a decade of community patient education and support experience at Detroit’s Karmanos Cancer Center led Brittain to identify the importance of reaching at-risk populations for cancer prevention.

Brittain’s initial research in colorectal cancer screening among African American women has expanded to include all women. Funded by the NIH/National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, the Center for Innovation in Point of Care Technologies for the Future of Cancer Care U54 grant involved a national multi-disciplinary team. She served as the sub-project Principal Investigator with colleagues from Boston University and the MSU Colleges of Engineering and Communication Arts and Sciences.
