Speaker Martha Shrubsole, Ph.D.
Event Details Dr. Martha Shrubsole is Research Professor of Medicine, Associate Director of the International Epidemiology Field Station, and Director of the Survey Research Shared Resource at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She leads a research portfolio of molecular, nutritional, and interventional epidemiology. Dr. Shrubsole has had leading roles in multiple randomized trials and large-scale epidemiologic studies based in the US and globally. A major focus of Dr. Shrubsole’s research is to understand the etiology of gastrointestinal neoplasia. She seeks to identify and evaluate modifiable factors and biomarkers, and to understand molecular mechanisms to lay the foundation for the prevention, early detection, and precision-based interception of cancer and its precursor lesions with emphasis on sessile serrated polyps and conventional colorectal adenomas. Some of these areas of study include nutrients such as one-carbon metabolism, inflammatory markers, gut microbiome, molecular landscape of colorectal polyps, health disparities, and predictors of metachronous adenomas.
