In the context of racial disparity, we are carrying out a molecular epidemiologic study to identify genetic and molecular biomarkers associated with cancer risk and clinical outcomes. We focus on breast cancer. In addition, we are interested to study how social contextual factors and built environment factors may influence cancer risks, clinical outcomes, and cancer disparities.
