Vassar’s Environmental Risks and Breast Cancer Project Now Online

The groundbreaking Environmental Risks and Breast Cancer (ERBC) project, which introduces users to the complex science exploring the connections between environmental factors and breast cancer, is now available online in both English and Spanish at The website was based on the first version of ERBC released in June 2006 on a multimedia CD, which was produced by a team of Vassar faculty, students, and technical professionals led by Janet Gray, professor of psychology and director of the Program in Science, Technology, and Society.

The project presents research from more than 200 scientific sources published in top-tier medical and environmental journals; informative videos; as well as a glossary, and is used by high schools, medical schools, clinics, doctors’ offices, and individuals concerned about cancer risks. Here, Professor Janet Gray shows off the ERBC CD.
