Zeinomar Research Program

Nur Zeinomar, PhD, MPH recently joined Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey as an Instructor of Medicine in the Section of Cancer Epidemiology and Health Outcomes.  Dr. Zeinomar comes to us from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health; New York, NY where she was a TL1 post-doctoral fellow focused on precision medicine at the Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (CTSA) and NCI-funded T32 a Post-Doctoral Research Scientist in Molecular and Cancer Epidemiology.  The overarching aim of her research is to translate epidemiologic findings into clinical care through more accurate risk assessment and to optimize risk-reducing strategies for outcomes after a cancer diagnosis. Specifically, she is interested in understanding the role of genetics, the environment, lifestyle factors, and their interplay on breast cancer etiology and prognosis.
