ODP Early-Stage Investigator Awardees To Speak, May 3
Winners of the Office of Disease Prevention’s inaugural Early-Stage Investigator Awards—Dr. Justin D. Brown and Dr. Katherine Keyes—will present on Wednesday, May 3 at 2 p.m. in Masur Auditorium, Bldg. 10. The talks will precede the Robert S. Gordon, Jr. Lecture in Epidemiology.
The award recognizes early-career prevention scientists who have not competed successfully for a substantial NIH-supported research project before the award nomination submission deadline, but who have already made significant, outstanding research contributions to their respective fields and are poised to become future leaders in prevention research.
Brown is a research fellow in population sciences at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School. His presentation is titled “A Phase II Randomized Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Dose-Response Effects of Exercise on Prognostic Biomarkers among Colon Cancer Survivors.”
Brown has published more than 45 peer-reviewed papers in journals such as the Journal of Clinical Oncology and the Journal of the National Cancer Institute and is an editorial board member of BMC Cancer.
Keyes is an associate professor of epidemiology at Columbia University. Her presentation is titled “Alcohol Use and Morbidity Across Historical Time: What Does Variation Tell Us About Environmental Determinants of Alcohol-Related Outcomes?” Her research focuses on life course epidemiology with particular attention to psychiatric disorders, including examination of fetal origins of child and adult health, long-term outcomes of adverse childhood environments and cross-generational cohort effects on substance use, mental health and chronic disease.
Registration for the event is not required. The presentations will also be available via NIH Videocast. For more information, contact Dr. Stephanie M. George, firstname.lastname@example.org.
