    Full Project-2 in the Accelerating Excellence in Translational Sciences (AXIS) Center
    Role Description: Title of the full project: Epigenomic and Genomic Factors emerging from Poor Social Determinants of Health and their impact on Breast Cancer associated with Obesity and Comorbidities in African American and Latina Women. The major goal of this project is to uncover cellular and molecular pathways, while integrating social and epidemiologic factors that may be associated with obesity and increased risks for breast cancer incidence and progression
    Role: Project PI

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
