THE WARREN ANDERSEN LAB
Research in the Epidemiology of Actionable Cancer Trends (REACT)
The overarching goal of our research program is to advance the understanding of the relations between social determinants, molecular characteristics, and modifiable risk factors with cancer risk and survivorship. Specific attention is given to the influence of sociocultural factors and tumor characteristics on health disparities in colorectal cancer risk. The research conducted within the Warren Andersen laboratory consists of clinical and population-based studies, primarily utilizing data from large cohort studies with stored biologic samples, cancer consortia datasets, and several epidemiological case-control studies.
