Peter Kraft and Ulrike Peters Date: September 4, 2019Time: 12:00 – 1:00pm ESTOnline Web Conference Registration is now closed. Evaluating gene X environment interactions are of increasing interest and importance in epidemiologic research. This webinar features two leaders in the field, Drs. Peter Kraft (Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health) and Ulrike Peters (Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center), who will review current methodology and provide illustrative examples of applications in cancer epidemiology. Peter Kraft is Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and Director of the Program in Genetic Epidemiology and Statistical Genetics at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. His research concentrates on the design and analysis of genetic association studies, with particular emphasis on the genetic epidemiology of cancer. He has participated in many international consortia studying genetics and environmental exposures in relation to cancer risk over the last … Continue reading SER-ASPO Collaboration
