Research Grand Rounds: Population Science and Cancer and Aging Research

Date Fri, Nov 11
Time 12: 00 PM - 1: 00 PM
Location Zoom

This month's Research Grand Rounds features Jeanne Mandelblatt, MD, PhD, MPH, who is a Professor of Oncology and Medicine and founding director of the Georgetown Lombardi Institute for Cancer and Aging (GLICA) Research. Dr. Mandelblatt will discuss "Population Science and Cancer and Aging Research."

For over three decades, her collaborative, discipline-spanning, and practice-changing translational, clinical and population health research, continuously supported by the NIH and others has focused at the intersection of cancer, aging, and disparities.  She and her colleagues have harnessed population health, clinical trial, and outcomes data, coupled with sophisticated modeling approaches to inform practice guidelines, healthcare policy, personalized medicine and shared decision making.  As well, her work has revealed basic mechanisms for bidirectional interactions between cancer and chemotherapy with aging and its functional and cognitive consequences.

Her talk will provide a detailed introduction to these approaches, how they are used to inform and improve care, and how they are now driving new basic, translational, and clinical research.

Research Grand Rounds are sponsored by the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) and MedStar Health Research Institute to bring together our diverse clinical and research communities to share research that spans disciplines and stages of translation to improve individual and community health.
