"Etiologic Studies of Lung Cancer Among Never Smoking Women in Asia"

Dr. Lan received her MD at Weifang Medical University and her PhD in molecular epidemiology at the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine in Beijing, as part of a joint training program with the U.S. EPA and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and her MPH at Johns Hopkins University. She was awarded NIH scientific tenure in 2008. Dr. Lan uses classic epidemiologic methods, detailed exposure assessment approaches, and state-of-the-art biomarker platforms to evaluate relationships between important exposures and cancer, and to obtain mechanistic insight.

Dr. Rothman received an AB in biochemistry and molecular biology at Harvard College and a MD at Northwestern University. At the Johns Hopkins University, he received training in internal medicine, occupational and environmental medicine, and epidemiology. Dr. Rothman joined the NCI in 1990. His research focuses on using biologic markers of exposure, early biologic effect, and genetic susceptibility in epidemiologic studies of occupational and environmental causes of cancer. He is the author of more than 700 publications.
