Millennials Help Scientists Transform Breast Cancer Research
What compels a twelve year old to commit to a five-year research study? Itís a mixture of cool and curiosity. Just ask Mackenzie Perry, who volunteered to participate in the largest breast cancer study of its kind in Canada. Led by Mount Sinai scientists the goal of the study is to understand the influence of behavior, environment and diet on pubertal growth in girls aged six to 13 and how these factors might impact their risk of breast cancer later in life.
