4th International Breast Cancer Prevention Symposium: Genes, the Environment and Breast Cancer Risk
October 16 @ 8:00 AM - - October 18 @ 12:00 PM - Stewart Center, #218, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN
The goal of this symposium is to bring together global public health actors, advocates, and researchers on breast cancer prevention, to discuss the impact of environmental factors such as foods, stress, exercise on the genome. The symposium will take us on a journey across disciplines to study different levels of gene –environment interactions. Concretely, we will explore the epigenetic mechanisms of gene expression control, health policy and practices, socioeconomic and cultural contexts in which these environmental factors come into play.
