Collaborations

The BCSC is a unique and rich research infrastructure designed to facilitate the collaboration of BCSC investigators and external investigators to evaluate issues pertaining to breast cancer screening in the United States. The table below lists current and past collaborations and initiatives between the BCSC and other organizations that are using the BCSC data in productive and innovative ways. The BCSC will also highlight new collaborative partnerships and ancillary grants as they develop.
