Conference Purpose

The Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program (BCERP) is conducting epidemiologic and biologic studies investigating the influence of Extended Environmental Exposures on breast cancer risk throughout the lifespan. Targeted for study are multiple “windows of susceptibility” that may represent periods of particular vulnerability to specific chemical, dietary, or psychosocial stresses. This will be the 10th annual meeting of the program and to honor this milestone, the scientific program is organized into three sessions: one that showcases some of the highlights of the first phase of the program, one that presents new, current research within the program, and a final session addressing the future of breast cancer research. As always, community participation and advocacy concerns will continue to be integrated into the program.

The audience for the meeting is expected to be BCERP members; scientists in the area of breast cancer and mammary biology, environmental epidemiology or children's health; and community, environmental health, and breast cancer advocates.
