Biomedical Endocrinology - Hormones and Breast Cancer
Endocrinology is the study of hormones. Hormones are the chemical signals that control all processes within an organism—at the cellular level (ex. gene), tissue (ex. Brain, thyroid) or organismal (ex. Growth, development, behavior). This presentation will discuss the connection of a body’s endocrine system and hormones as well as exogenous hormones (birth control, HRT, EDCs) to the development and progression of breast cancer.
