A

  • Albert, Paul S., Ph.D.
    Complex modeling of correlated outcomes in biomedical sciences, including the analysis of longitudinal data, diagnostic testing, and data from biomarker studies

C

  • Cahoon, Elizabeth K., Ph.D., M.H.S., S.M.
    Dr. Cahoon’s research aims to uncover new, potentially modifiable factors that impact the effects of ultraviolet radiation on skin cancer risks and to expand and advance the assessment of cancer in relation to ionizing radiation exposure

E

  • Engels, Eric A., M.D., M.P.H
    HIV- and AIDS-associated cancers. Solid organ transplant-related cancers. Cancers associated with other immune-related conditions.

G

  • Gadalla, Shahinaz, Ph.D., M.B.Bch.
    Dr. Gadalla’s research interests focus on identifying and characterizing individuals at high risk of developing cancer and discovering predictive and prognostic biomarkers that may guide therapeutic decisions for those patients.
  • Gierach, Gretchen L., Ph.D., M.P.H.
    Etiology of hormonally-related female cancers. Molecular mechanisms underlying breast carcinogenesis. Molecular epidemiology of mammographic density and breast cancer.

K

  • Khincha, Payal, MBBS, MSHS
    Clinical evaluations and genetics epidemiology of individuals with Li-Fraumeni Syndrome. Diagnostic methods and clinical management of dyskeratosis congenita (DC), a cancer-prone inherited bone marrow failure syndrome and telomere biology disorder (TBD).
  • Kitahara, Cari Meinhold, Ph.D.
    Cancer risks associated with occupational exposure to low-dose radiation from emerging medical practices and procedures, and etiology of radiation-associated cancers, including potential effect modifiers. Cancer sites include brain (glioma) and thyroid.

L

  • Lee, Choonsik, Ph.D.
    Organ radiation dose estimations for diagnostic and therapeutic medical procedures using computer simulations of human anatomy and radiation-generating machines.
  • Little, Mark, D.Phil.
    Low-dose radiation and cancer risk, high-dose radiation and cancer risk, modeling of radio-biological processes.

M

  • Morton, Lindsay M., Ph.D.
    Genetic susceptibility to second cancers. Treatment-related (radiography and chemotherapy) second primary gastrointestinal cancers, as well as cancers of the breast, cervix, and testis, retinoblastoma, and hematopoietic malignancies. Also second cancer risks in high-risk populations, such as recipients of solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplants.

S

  • Savage, Sharon A., M.D.
    Genetic and molecular epidemiology of telomere biology, pediatric cancer etiology, and inherited cancer predisposition syndromes.
