Research

Dr. Peres is a cancer epidemiologist that uses interdisciplinary approaches to examine the effects of both molecular and lifestyle factors on cancer etiology and prognosis. Her primary area of focus is ovarian cancer research, with a particular interest in determining the contributing causes of racial/ethnic differences in incidence and survival of this cancer type.
