Understanding Breast Cancer Disparities: Cells to Society
Dr. Lauren E. McCullough received her B.A. from Vanderbilt University (2005), M.S.P.H. from Meharry Medical College (2007), and Ph.D. in Epidemiology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2013). She is currently Rollins Assistant Professor in the Epidemiology Department and member of the Winship Cancer Institute. Dr. McCullough’s overarching research interests are in the life-course epidemiology of breast cancer, specifically the contributions of obesity and the social environment to the tumor epigenome and microenvironment, as well as disparities in cancer outcomes. Her research program integrates molecular epidemiology, epigenetics and other biomarkers for disease risk and progression; environmental and reproductive epidemiology; disparities research; and causal inference methods. The abiding goal of Dr. McCullough’s research is to improve cancer outcomes in underserved populations by identifying targets for pharmacologic, behavioral, and policy intervention.
