Study to examine whether cancer risk from in utero environmental exposures can be reversedTags: cancer, university of arizona
[Source: University of Arizona Communications] - Might a diet that includes grapes and berries aid a pregnant mother in preventing her unborn daughter from developing breast cancer later in life?
Two researchers at the University of Arizona have a three-year, $563,000 grant from the Department of Defense to conduct an initial investigation of how exposure to a group of environmental pollutants, called dioxins, are related to breast cancer. Their research may shed light on whether compounds found in certain foods can protect against damage caused by dioxin exposure, even in children who have not been born.
Now available: “Arizona’s Bioscience Roadmap 2014-2025: Advancing the Biosciences and Improving Health Outcomes,” is now available along with its supplement, “Summary of Goals, Strategies, and Potential Actions.” An overview by Walter Plosila, Ph.D., Battelle senior advisor, is also available. The updated Roadmap provides a long-term strategy for Arizona to achieve bioscience success over the next decade.
