Studying High-Risk Cancer Pedigrees
The Cannon-Albright lab has a major focus on cancer. We have two major areas of concentration. The first area is the creation and analysis of large genealogical databases to explore the genetics of health-related phenotypes. The second area is the study of high-risk pedigrees to identify disease predisposition genes or variants.
We are currently funded by the VHA to build a US genealogy and link to the VHA patient database of 25 million.Learn more about the Cannon-Albright lab’s research >>
