Research Abstract

I am interested in how common genetic variation influences risk of ovarian and endoemtrial cancer. I am currently looking at how commonly occurring genetic variants, called polymorphisms, in the IGF and telomere maintenance pathways are associated with ovarian cancer risk in a population-based case-control study (Daniel Cramer, PI). In addition, I plan to evaluate how polymorphisms influence ovarian cancer survival and how telomere length may predict ovarian cancer risk. For endometrial cancer, I am studying whether a functional polymorphism (SNP309) in the MDM2 gene is associated with endometrial cancer risk in a well established cohort (the Nurses' Health Study).
