Research Interest

To implement prevention strategies that engage clinicians, the community and individuals. We can have an impact on the entire community and the region. Siteman has enormous strength in basic science research and understanding disease processes. The cancer center's Prevention and Control Program creates a complement between discoveries in biological science and effective interventions. The challenge is to add ways to identify cancer risks for both individuals and within whole communities and to change behavior to lower risk and improve people’s lives.
