Gunnison supported the design, development, testing and deployment of the Sister Study Information Management System. The Sister Study is the only long-term study of women aged 35 to 74 who have sisters with breast cancer. It is a national study to learn how environment and genes affect the chances of getting breast cancer. It recently exceeded its recruitment goal of 50,000 women, and will follow the women for at least 10 years to collect information about genes, lifestyle, and environmental factors that may cause breast cancer.
