overview I am a cancer epidemiologist with a primary research focus on the etiology of multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. My active studies are based in the Nurses' Health Study and Health Professionals Follow-up Study cohorts and include examinations of both lifestyle-related and biomarker-characterized risk factors. To date, we have evaluated body mass index and other anthropometric measures, physical activity, aspirin use and serologic biomarkers of insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1, insulin, interleukin (IL)-6 and adiponectin dysregulation and risk of multiple myeloma in local studies and in collaboration with external cohorts. A multi-cohort study to examine genetic susceptibility to multiple myeloma is in progress. My non-Hodgkin lymphoma studies have also examined obesity-related anthropometric measures, dietary factors and serologic markers of immune activation and inflammation, as well as of dietary fatty acids. I have enjoyed local collaborations on studies of multiple myeloma with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute SPORE in multiple myeloma (Kenneth C. Anderson, PI) and on studies of Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia (Irene M. Ghobrial, PI). I currently co-lead a large pooled study of time-varying non-genetic risk factors for multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and common histologic and tissue molecular subtypes of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in our local cohorts and three external cohorts. I have also led or collaborated on numerous studies in large international consortia, where I have also held leadership roles: the International Lymphoma Epidemiology (InterLymph) Consortium, the International Multiple Myeloma Consortium (IMMC, now the Myeloma Working Group of InterLymph) and the National Cancer Institute Lymphoid Malignancies Working Group. I also represent the Nurses' Health Study and Health Professionals Follow-up Study in a large multi-site genome-wide association study of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
