A major focus of my current research is to develop the field of genetic counseling and genetic testing for prostate cancer which has a substantial heritable component. The ultimate goal of this research is to provide prostate cancer patients and their families with genetic information on inherited cancer risk to inform screening, treatment, and prevention approaches. My research studies encompass genetic characterization of cancer risk using sequencing technologies, molecular signatures, and novel biomarkers to ultimately reduce cancer-related morbidity and mortality. Studies also focus on disparities in cancer risk assessment as well as behavioral factors impacting genetic counseling for men.
