Dr. Egan is an epidemiologist with interests in basic cancer biology and the molecular genetics of cancer. She has published more than 60 primary research reports in the areas of breast cancer risk factors and outcome; she maintains active collaborations with investigators at Vanderbilt, University of Wisconsin and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Institute as well as members of the Breast Cancer Association Consortium. Currently, she is funded to investigate genetic and environmental risk factors for glioma, a primary tumor of the brain, and is PI of a clinic-based multicenter case-control study of glioma (‘GliomaSE’) in which Moffitt serves as the coordinating center. Patients with glioma also are followed prospectively for recurrence, progression and mortality endpoints as a basis for outcomes-focused investigation. Dr. Egan is active in postdoctoral research training at Moffitt and currently serves as program leader of an R25T Postdoctoral Training Fellowship in Molecular Epidemiology in the Department of Cancer Epidemiology.
