Research

Inherited risk of cancer and genetic determinants disease outcome

Dr. Pomerantz's research focuses on the factors associated with cancer risk, with an emphasis on prostate cancer. Prostate cancer develops in the setting of many environmental and inherited risk factors. Since 2006, the inherited component of the disease has come into clearer focus. Multiple genetic markers, inherited from one's parents and highly associated with risk of prostate cancer, have been discovered. However, the mechanism in which these inherited factors predispose one to disease is unknown. Working closely with clinicians, biostatisticians and epidemiologists at Dana-Farber and the Broad Institute, he is actively deciphering this mechanism in an attempt to define the underpinnings of prostate cancer risk.
