Cancer Epidemiology

My research interest and expertise is in the area of cancer epidemiology. I have published widely on environmental carcinogens, cancer and nutrition, and genetic susceptibility to cancer. I am internationally known for my       work in cancer prevention which includes the study of cancer risk factors in healthy populations, cancer predisposing factors, hormone metabolism and genetic susceptibility to environmental exposure; cancer survivorship   and the effect of lifestyles changes on the risk for cancer recurrence and the development of new secondary cancers; health disparity, access to care in minorities, and chronic diseases prevention in the underserved. I am the Director of the Center for the Study of Thoracic Diseases Outcomes and in that capacity I work closely with surgeons, radiologists and immunologists on lung cancer early detection and treatment studies.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology companies, and other outside entities to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their outside financial relationships.
