The AMBER Consortium's New Site Goes Live

Thu, May 9th 2013 10:00 am

The AMBER Consortium launched its new website www.theamberproject.org with 360 Professional Services Group.

The AMBER Consortium was formed through a National Cancer Institute Program Project Grant to combine four of the country's leading studies on African American women and breast cancer to study over 10,000 women. By combining the data from these studies, the consortium hopes to discover genetic, biologic, reproductive and behavioral risk factors for breast cancer.  

In need of a website to educate researchers and the public about their project, the graphic designers at 360 PSG delivered a customized site that allows the AMBER Consortium to share information about the project's studies and findings with a large audience.

360 PSG's programming team also gave the AMBER Consortium's new site a password protected, members-only file library, so that researchers may gain access to the project's database of information.

The AMBER Consortium's new website operates on the Fission Web System, which contains built-in search engine optimization tools that have the potential to increase search engine ranking and improve visibility online.

With the Fission Content Management System (CMS), the AMBER Consortium has the ability to create, edit, and update an unlimited number of content pages from any computer with internet access at any time.

The AMBER Consortium's new site is hosted on 360 PSG's secure servers at their business class datacenter in downtown Buffalo, NY.
