AMBER Consortium


AMBER ConsortiumAMBER (African American Breast Cancer Epidemiology and Risk) is a collaboration of four studies: the Women’s Circle of Health Study, the Black Women’s Health Study, the Carolina Breast Cancer Study, and the Multiethnic Cohort Study funded by the National Cancer Institute.  The goal of this consortium is to study the impact of genetic and lifestyle factors on the risk of breast cancer subtypes in African American women.
