Four newly created Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Centers will work together in a $35 million effort to investigate the prenatal to adult environmental factors that may predispose woman to developing breast cancer. The centers, jointly financed by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, will receive $5 million annually for 7 years. The new research centers will be located at the University of Cincinnati, Fox Chase Cancer Center, University of California, San Francisco, and Michigan State University, East Lansing. The quartet will act as a single program, although with some specialization at each center, and will collaborate on several research fronts.
