Breast Cancer Research and Education

The Health Research Science Board has supported breast cancer research studies and education projects since 1996.

Each year, nearly 14,000 New York State citizens are diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 3,000 die from the disease. The Health Research Science Board was created in 1996 to support research for the cure and prevention of breast cancer and to consider requests for the release of confidential pesticide information for specific health-related research projects from the Pesticide Sales and Use Database, maintained by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) in conjunction with Cornell University.

To date, the Health Research Science Board has recommended nearly $11 million in breast cancer research studies and education projects supported by the Breast Cancer Research and Education Fund.
