[Perspectives] David Whiteman: harnessing the power of cancer prevention

Epidemiologist David Whiteman, Deputy Director at the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, Brisbane, QLD, Australia, and his team are doing vital research to tease apart the complex interactions between environment, phenotype, and genotype that contribute to melanoma and other cancers. This research extends the previous work of his team that includes both researching causal pathways and creating models to predict a person’s risk of keratinocyte cancers and melanoma, with implications for prevention and control.
