Biography

Dr. Felix is a cancer epidemiologist with strong interests in the molecular epidemiology of gynecologic malignancies. Specifically, Dr. Felix’s research activities include refining risk factors associations for heterogeneous endometrial cancer subtypes, investigating the molecular mechanisms that underlie these relationships and identifying modifiable factors that can improve prognosis among endometrial cancer patients. Her work has specifically focused on women diagnosed with clinically aggressive endometrial tumors, which represent a diverse and understudied group of tumors, characterized by racial disparities. Prior to joining the faculty at Ohio State University, Dr. Felix completed her post-doctoral fellowship in epidemiology in DCEG.
