Brief description Genetic factors responsible for risk of breast and prostate cancer are largely unknown. Mutations in genes currently known to be associated with susceptibility only account for a small proportion of the familial aggregation of these cancers. I will be applying new genetic technology to population-based studies of cancer to identify new genetic and epigenetic markers of cancer risk. I will use this information to improve health care for families with prostate and breast cancer.
