Scientific summary

My research focuses on the use of molecular genetic epidemiology techniques to explore the mechanisms of breast cancer development and progression.  I have the opportunity to be affiliated with not only a leading cancer treatment and research center, but also large collaborative efforts in prospective cohorts.  This gives me access to a wide range of biologic, epidemiologic, and clinical data.  Additionally, my affiliations with academic institutions provide access to cutting edge techniques for analyzing such complex data.  By thoroughly exploiting the ensemble of these tools, I aim to further our understanding of the mechanisms behind breast cancer tumor development and progression, which will allow better methods of prevention, detection, and treatment.
