Two breast cancer research studies led by the University of Stirling’s Occupational and Environmental Health Research Group (OEHRG), which found women working in certain occupational sectors face an elevated breast cancer risk, have won an international scientific research award.
Co-investigator, Professor Matthias Beck of Queen's University Management School in Belfast says: “Our studies add to the growing scientific literature pointing to the necessity to eliminate exposures to toxic chemicals in the work environment in order to prevent breast and other cancers.”
He adds: “They also highlight the need for researchers from different areas to collaborate in order to improve our understanding of workplace hazards."
