Bringing Precision to the Future of Environmental Breast Cancer Research
Breast cancer is a complex disease with risk influenced by multiple genetic, environmental, hormonal, and behavioral factors. Prevention efforts will require improved understanding of individual risk posed by environmental chemicals, the timing, dose and duration of exposures and the impact of genetic polymorphisms that influence risk and resistance to the chemicals. Biomonitoring of markers of breast cancer risk offer exciting new insights into the natural history of disease. Communication about breast cancer risk will also need to account for individual risk and the level of uncertainty for that risk. This annual BCERP conference incorporates the complementary perspectives of basic science, population science and community engagement with a focus on empowering individuals and tackling the hurdles that remain.
Please join us for the BCERP Annual Meeting. Take this opportunity to engage with researchers, advocates, and community members in discussion on envrionmental exposures and breast cancer at the BCERP conference.
The meeting is open to the public at no cost.
The meeting will be an all-day event on Thursday, Nov. 7 and continue for a half-day on Friday, Nov. 8. The meeting will feature celebrated speakers, informative sessions on interactions with environmental exposures and breast cancer risk, and a research poster session.
