Dale Sandler, Ph.D. & Katie O'Brien, Ph.D.
Dale Sandler, Ph.D. and Katie O'Brien, Ph.D., are scientists with the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and members of The Sister Study team. This year marks the 20th anniversary of this study, which includes more than 50,000 women across the U.S. and Puerto Rico, who were between ages 35–74 and whose sister had breast cancer. This landmark research effort focused on the causes of breast cancer. Because of their shared environment, genes, and experiences, studying sisters provides a greater chance of identifying risk factors that may aid in finding ways to prevent breast cancer.
