Using Breastmilk to Study Breast Cancer Risk

Kathleen Arcaro, Ph.D. is a professor of Environmental Toxicology at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She received a BS from Douglass College, a PhD from Rutgers University and conducted postdoctoral research at both the State University of New York at Albany and the Wadsworth Laboratories of the New York State Department of Health. For the last decade Dr. Arcaro has been studying breastmilk as a means of understanding how environmental exposures and lifestyle choices can affect the development of breast cancer. Her current breastmilk research program is focused on using DNA methylation in breastmilk to accurately assess breast cancer risk and as a tool for early detection. Dr. Arcaro’s research on the epigenetics of cells in breast milk has been funded by the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program, the Avon Foundation for Women, and the National Institutes of Health. http://www.vasci.umass.edu/research-faculty/kathleen-f-arcaro http://www.breastmilkresearch.org/
