Program on Breast Cancer and Environmental Risk Factors (BCERF)
Now part of the Sprecher Institute for Comparative Cancer Research 
(Cornell University)

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 
our new collection of articles 


September 30, 2005 from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Room 711 A, The Legislative Office Building
Albany, New York

BCERF strives to provide information on environmental risk factors 
and the risk of breast cancer and other hormonally dependent cancers. 
We provide information in a variety of forms helping our readers make 
informed decisions for the reduction of breast cancer risk.
