Program on Breast Cancer and Environmental Risk Factors (BCERF)
Now part of the Sprecher Institute for Comparative Cancer Research
VISIT OUR REDESIGNED WEB SITE BCERF is pleased to invite you to
visit our completely revamped web site
(http://envirocancer.cornell.edu). We have a new look and new tools
so you can use our resources more efficiently. As BCERF grew, our
library of resources outgrew our former web site. We spent 2004
planning and reworking our web site to improve our ability to give
you science-based information on environmental factors and cancer
We've added a Search tool for Fact Sheets and articles from The
Ribbon. You can search for the resource you need several ways
including by keyword.
The new site design is streamlined and logical. Everything is easier
to find. Move through the site easily without losing your place in
stacks of pages.
Collections are an innovative system for grouping resources including
fact sheets and bibliographies. Collections cover topics including
Basics of Breast Cancer and Chemicals in Food and Water. Explore
topics using Collections as your "recommended reading lists."
We're featuring more current research being conducted by BCERF and
others around the world. You'll find project overviews and links to
more information about research currently underway and just completed.
