Breast Cancer Family Registry
- Australia |
Dr. Bradbury is involved in the Breast Cancer Family Registry (BCFR), a large cohort study of families who are at increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer based on family history or genetic mutations. The study is based at 6 research sites in the US, Australia and Canada. This study follows approximately 30,000 individuals from nearly 12,000 families by administering questionnaires and collecting biospecimens and pathology information. This study will help to better understand how genes interact with the environment and how risk factors may vary for different subtypes of breast cancer. Knowledge gained will be used to develop recommendations for preventing breast cancer and promoting good health for families at increased risk.
