Description


Complexity of cancer susceptibility

Speaker: Dr. Stephen Chanock, Director, Division of Cancer Epidemiology & Genetics, US National Cancer Institute (NCI)

November 1, 2019
11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Klaus Wrogemann Seminar Room 341 Basic Medical Sciences Building

This session will be offered via webcast (the live session will take place in Toronto).


Dr. Stephen Chanock 
Director, Division of Cancer Epidemiology & Genetics, US National Cancer Institute (NCI) 

Dr. Chanock is a leading expert in the discovery and characterization of cancer susceptibility regions in the human genome. He has received numerous awards for his scientific contributions to our understanding of common inherited genetic variants associated with cancer risk and outcomes. 

His research focuses on understanding the biological basis for genetic susceptibility to cancer including: the identification of cancer susceptibility alleles; characterization of the scope of genetic mosaicism and its contribution to cancer risk; investigation of the genetic architecture of cancer susceptibility; determination of how germline variation informs our understanding of somatic alterations in cancer. 


The George & Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) is hosting the CANSSI Ontario STAGE (Strategic Training for Advanced Genetic Epidemiology) International Speaker Monthly Seminar Series. This is a formal and comprehensive training program in Genetic Epidemiology and Statistical Genetics.

CANSSI Ontario STAGE aims to expose trainees to high-calibre international research and foster a cohesive research community of genetic epidemiologists, statistical geneticists and bioinformatician in Canada through this series, and in the context of genetic epidemiology, statistical genetics and bioinformatics research.
