Immune epigenetic biomarkers of bladder cancer outcomes

Associate Professor of Epidemiology Brock Christensen has received a new R01 to study biomarkers of bladder cancer.  The grant proposes to leverage an existing population-based study of bladder cancer that includes a range of patient age groups, has several years of follow up, includes patient treatment and outcome data, as well as matched tumor samples. The project aims to advance towards improved risk projection in newly diagnosed patients by helping to develop a novel and flexible immune monitoring toolkit that can inform clinical decision-making.
