Cancer Epidemiology

The mission of the Department of Cancer Epidemiology is to investigate preventive and risk factors for cancer, biomarkers of disease risk and progression, and lifestyle and molecular factors that affect patient outcomes; all using human populations as the laboratory.  Faculty members possess content expertise across a breadth of specialties, including molecular epidemiology, genetics and genomics, nutrition, pharmacology, physics, viral and infectious agents of disease, biostatistics, surgical and radiation oncology, and clinical genetics. Our investigators collaborate with basic and clinician scientists and other population scientists at Moffitt in all of the major departments and programs to identify novel and testable hypotheses and to facilitate research with the ultimate goal of reducing the burden of cancer in human populations through prevention and early detection of disease.
