JCCC SeminarDr. Victoria Seewaldt

Presented by:
Victoria Seewaldt, M.D.
Professor, Department of Medicine
Duke University

Dr. Seewaldt's translational research involves multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional collaborations with basic, translational, and clinical scientists, with the goal of integrating novel functional imaging strategies with genetic and epigenetic markers of short-term breast cancer risk. The unique feature of Dr. Seewaldt's program is that biomarkers identified in the laboratory can be immediately tested as predictors of short-term breast cancer risk in the high-risk women who participate in her cohort. Dr. Seewaldt sees her cohort as a resource for developing partnerships between clinical investigators and bioengineers to develop novel strategies for early detection.
