Silent Spring Institute is staffed and led by researchers dedicated to science that serves the public interest. We partner with physicians, public health and community advocates and other scientists to identify and break the links between environmental chemicals and women’s health, especially breast cancer.

The Institute’s pioneering community-based approach to research has transformed the traditional dynamic between “scientist” and “subject” so both are working side-by-side to uncover findings that can help save lives and stop people from getting sick in the first place.
