Program on Breast Cancer and Environmental Risk Factors (BCERF)
Now part of the Sprecher Institute for Comparative Cancer Research
EXPLORE THE AGRICULTURAL HEALTH STUDY (AHS) BCERF reviews the
Agricultural Health Study (AHS). This large-scale, long-term study is
evaluating whether the use of pesticides is or is not associated with
increased risk of different cancers, as well as other health effects.
See our web page <http://envirocancer.cornell.edu/Research/AgHealth/>
for an overview of the study and highlights of new findings as well
as links to more information.
WHAT IS TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH? Translational research is at the
heart of BCERF's mission. We start by gathering and critiquing basic
research on environmental risk factors, and translate this
information into different formats that can be used by the public,
medical professionals, educators, activists, other scientists, the
regulatory community, and policy makers. Find out more about our
approach in our new Translational Research pages
UNDERSTANDING RESEARCH PROJECTS Drawn from the archives of The
Ribbon newsletter, this collection of articles includes reviews of
current projects, commentaries on cancer research, and key concepts
for understanding the design and results of research projects. See
