Research Abstract

The focus of my research is on epidemiologic methods and how we distinguish between association and causation in observational research. I have been applying this work to the study of the role of religion and spirituality in end-of-life cancer care, and to examining the mechanisms governing associations between genetic and environmental risk factors and cancer risk.
