vivors. Using a multicenter population-based setting she substantiated the association between tamoxifen use and risk of subsequent endometrial cancer in women and demonstrated for the first time that this association is potentially restricted to women who had previously used unopposed estrogen therapy or who were obese at the time of their breast cancer diagnosis. Recently, in a large HMO-based study of risk of stroke in relation to breast cancer therapies, she demonstrated the absence of an association between tamoxifen and stroke risk but an increased stroke risk following chemotherapy.

Past winners of AACR-Prevent Cancer Foundation Award for Excellence in Cancer Prevention include Stephen Hecht, Ph.D., of The Cancer Center at the University of Minnesota, in 2006; Scott M. Lippman, M.D., of The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, in 2005; David S. Alberts, M.D., of the Arizona Cancer Center, in 2004; Waun Ki Hong, M.D., also of the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, in 2003; and Michael B. Sporn, M.D., of the Dartmouth Medical School, in 2002.

Bernstein received her B.A. in Mathematics, M.S. in Gerontology, and Ph.D. in Biometry from the University of Southern California. She rose through the academic ranks of USC, culminating with her current positions of Professor of Preventive Medicine and the first AFLAC, Incorporated Chair in Cancer Research. Bernstein was named Professor Emeritus of USC following her retirement there in 2007.

Bernstein has received numerous honors and awards for her scientific accomplishments, including the American Society for Preventive Oncology Distinguished Achievement Award, the USC Presidential Medallion (the Universitys highest honor), and the Keck School of Medicine Stevely Hoffman Achievement Award. Her distinguished lectureships include the Cutter Lectureship at Harvard University, the Meadow Brook Lecture at Wayne State and Oakland Universities, and the Sloan Memorial Lecture at Boston U
