Our research program addresses several unanswered questions in lung cancer using an approach that integrates epidemiological, experimental and translational research.
Disparities in lung cancer incidence, especially amongst men, have been evident for several decades. However, the potential etiological, genetic, and biological reasons behind these differences are underexplored and not well understood. Our laboratory investigates the science behind these health disparities and is using a multidisciplinary approach to address this question.
Our laboratory is also interested in applying a biological framework to understanding the mechanism of interaction between genetics and environment with regard to lung carcinogenesis. Specifically, we have an interest in both early and adult life exposures and mechanistically understanding how they mediate lung cancer risk later in life.
