Program Description

NIEHS and the National Cancer Institute co-fund the Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program (BCERP), which supports multidisciplinary scientists, clinicians, and community partners studying environmental exposures that occur throughout a woman's life and could predispose her to breast cancer.

BCERP Windows of Susceptibility Studies are examining how breast cancer risk relates to environmental exposures that occur during susceptible times in development, and the BCERP Puberty Study is following more than 1,200 young girls to better understand predictors of early puberty, which is associated with increased breast cancer risk.
