NYU Women's Health Study

For over 25 years, the NYU Women's Health Study has been committed to studying the causes of serious diseases in women. When the study began in 1985, its goal was to identify the role of hormones and diet in the development of the most common cancers in women, especially breast cancer. Today, the aims of the NYU Women's Health Study have expanded to include the study of both blood and genetic markers in relation to cancer and other diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and osteoporotic fractures. The ultimate aim of the study is to identify potential prevention strategies for these diseases. The study would not be possible without the continued help of our participants.
