A twin study of breast cancer and epigenetics
Grant number: 1050561 | Funding period: 2013 - 2016
We will conduct a study of more than 500 Australian female twin pairs in which one or both have had breast cancer. We will also study measured and unmeasured genetic and environmental causes of risk factors.
