The focus of my research has been women's health, particularly the role of lifestyle factors, diet, micronutrient supplementation, and hormone replacement therapy in the prevention of chronic disease in women. A major interest is the assessment of endocrinologic predictors of breast cancer, including the role of biochemical and genetic biomarkers. Utilizing epidemiologic methods in large-scale prospective cohort studies and randomized clinical trials, I have collaborated on studies of biomarkers (including sex steroid hormones and genetic markers) in predicting risk of breast cancer, as well as other cancer epidemiology studies. Much of this work has emanated from the following research studies: the Nurses' Health Study, the Women's Health Initiative, the Women's Antioxidant Cardiovascular Study, and the Women's Health Study.
