hey have, including health status, and other related lifestyle behaviors, such as diet, tobacco and drug use, environmental factors, gynecological history and family risk. This information will be used to help target prevention services now and in the future. Women diagnosed with breast cancer will additionally join a "survivorship cohort" comprised of women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.

"We will be able to create a state-wide cohort of women at risk of breast cancer and develop the optimal methods for the early detection of all types of breast cancer," said Robert Hiatt, MD, PhD, professor and co-chair of the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at UCSF. He is also director of population sciences and deputy director of the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, and his research focuses on breast cancer and the environment. "The size and diversity of the survivorship cohort and the depth and quality of the information we'll have will be unprecedented and will enable the development and testing of robust new models of cancer outcomes and prognosis."

The UC system is particularly well-positioned for a project of ATHENA's magnitude because the medical centers annually screen as many as 80,000 women, and diagnose 2,500 patients with breast cancer. Still, said Esserman, the new project calls for "a re-imaginingand then a re-engineering so that we can continually improve what we do -- to improve our current processes, to streamline communication and access to information among care providers and patients, and to improve the efficiency of services."

The potential rewards are significant, she stressed. "This project will standardize the collection of structured data from both patients and physicians so that it is computable, interoperable, and reusable, and it will integrate molecular profiling at the time of diagnosis, and create an unparalleled biospecimen repository. The result will be a network that enab
