Profile

My main research has focused on molecular, genetic, and nutritional epidemiology of cancer and other chronic diseases. My current research is supported by several NIH grants, including an NCI MERIT award. I have authored or co-authored more than 750 publications. Over the past seven years, I have directed two large genetic research consortia in East Asians that have identified more than 30 novel susceptibility loci/genetic variants for breast and colorectal cancers. I am the PI for the Shanghai Women's Health Study including approximately 75,000 study participants. I am a key founding co-investigator of the Shanghai Men's Health Study and the Southern Community Cohort Study (SCCS) and currently serve as a joint PI for the SCCS. I also initiated the Nashville Breast Health Study and the Tennessee Colorectal Polyp Study, in which more than 12,000 cases and controls were recruited. Since 2000 I have served as the primary mentor for more than three dozen junior investigators, including over 15 assistant professors. Currently, I am the primary mentor for three Ph.D. students, four postdoctoral fellows, and multiple assistant professors.
