Center for Integrative Research on Childhood Leukemia and the Environment (CIRCLE)

The Center for Integrative Research on Childhood Leukemia and the Environment (CIRCLE) brings together researchers from UC Berkeley, UCSF, and other institutions to search for the causes of leukemia in children and to understand why leukemia rates are especially high among LatinX children in California. The center is part of the NIEHS-EPA’s Children’s Centers Program, which supports a broad range of research on children’s environmental health and health disparities by combining cutting-edge science, research translation, and community engagement.

CIRCLE is one of many projects focused on finding causes of cancer in children, adolescents and young adults which are being conducted by the Integrative Cancer Research (ICARE) Group led by Professor Metayer.
