Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and in honor of the heroic work done to find a cure and to inspire hope, we'd like to highlight a few current programs in IRIS that are doing just that.

From the American Association for Cancer Research, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Career Development Award (Note: This grant was not offered for 2005-06. If this grant is offered next year, we will post it.10/26/06) for first or second year at the level of Assistant Professor or an equivalent full-time, tenure-track faculty appointment at an academic or medical institution anywhere in the world.

From the Department of Health and Human Services and the National Institutes of Health, In Utero Exposure to Bioactive Food Components and Mammary Cancer Risk promotes research that will enhance the understanding of the relationship between exposures to bioactive food components and/or environmental chemicals that result in mammary cancer risk.
