, by DCEG Staff
In spring 2020, Mia M. Gaudet, Ph.D., joined DCEG as the senior scientist for the Connect for Cancer Prevention Cohort in the Epidemiology and Biostatistics Program. The Connect study is a new prospective cohort designed to further investigate the etiology of cancer and its outcomes by capitalizing on research innovations to advance the field of cancer epidemiology and prevention.
Dr. Gaudet will oversee cohort management and activities as well as serve as the study’s chair in the DCEG Steering Committee. Dr Gaudet’s research primarily focuses on the clarification and identification of genetic and non-genetic risk factors for subtypes of breast cancer with an emphasis on more fatal subtypes in the Cancer Prevention Study cohorts. She earned her doctoral degree in Epidemiology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and completed her postdoctoral fellowship training in DCEG.
