Harlyne J. Norris Cancer Research Tower (NRT), 1508

Talk title:  “Translating cancer genomics into precision medicine”

The Center for Genetic Epidemiology is hosting an in-person and virtual seminar with Pooja Middha, PhD,(https://profiles.ucsf.edu/pooja.middha), candidate for Professor at The Center for Genetic Epidemiology at USC. Dr. Middha is a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). She earned her Master of Public Health (MPH) in Global Health Epidemiology from the University of Michigan, followed by a PhD from the Ruprecht Karl University of Heidelberg and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). Dr. Middha's research is centered on bridging the gap between genomic research and clinical translation, specifically focusing on cancer. She applies advanced statistical methodologies to address important questions in cancer research, including genetic prediction of adverse events in cancer patients undergoing immunotherapy treatment, identifying novel genetic markers associated with cancer risk in diverse populations, and investigating the complex interplay between genetic and non-genetic factors influencing cancer susceptibility. Her recent work delves into understanding the role of the heritable component of systemic and tumor immune landscape in shaping cancer outcomes.
