Dr. Rebbeck's primary research interest is in the area of molecular and genetic epidemiology of common cancers. His research focuses on studies of breast, prostate, and melanoma skin cancers. The goal of this research is to identify genes involved in the etiology of these cancers, and to identify interactions of these genes with endogenous or exogenous exposures. These studies use a multidisciplinary approach that combines methods from epidemiology, statistics, molecular biology, and classical genetics. He directs a laboratory for molecular epidemiology, that is geared toward the generation of molecular biomarker data for family and epidemiological studies.
