I worked in the field of molecular cancer epidemiology and investigated cancer genetic susceptibility and cancer biomarkers. My research focused on identifying molecular and genetic cancer biomarkers, investigating their roles in cancer risk assessment, early detection, progression and prediction of clinical outcome. I played important roles in research projects to identify circulating biomarkers, such as circulating microRNAs, metabolites, mitochondrial DNA (MtDNA), global DNA methylation, lncRNAs in various cancers, including breast cancer, glioma, melanoma, lung cancer, and assessed their relation with cancer risk and clinical outcome. I also participated in research projects to investigate the relation of biomarkers, health behaviors, social-demographics, and cancer risk among Mexican-Americans.
