Departmental Overview

The Women Worker Biomonitoring Collaborative is a community-engaged research project with several partners: UC Berkeley (School of Public Health and Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management), the Alliance of Nurses for a Healthy Environment and UCSF Nursing, Silent Spring Institute (a research institute in MA, specializing on links between women s health and the environment), United Fire Service Women, the San Francisco Firefighters Cancer Prevention Foundation, Commonweal, and Breast Cancer Prevention Partners.

Through chemical biomonitoring, the WWBC will compare exposures to potential breast carcinogens and other endocrine disrupting compounds and their metabolites between 60 UCSF Nurses and 40 female controls who are office workers from the City and County of San Francisco. In addition, this study will explore chemical exposures after a fire event among women firefighters in San Francisco. Overall this study will develop a mass spectra chemical database for non-targeted biomonitoring of potential breast carcinogens for nurses and firefighters (Aim 1). We will identify potential breast carcinogen exposures and associated biological responses among nurses and office workers using non-targeted analysis techniques (Aim 2). We will identify potential breast carcinogen exposures and associated biological responses related to fire events (Aim 3). And we will report back individual and aggregate results to those study participants who want them (Aim 4)
