Nina Totenberg on Justice Ginsburg’s final battle with cancer [Video]

“That was when I learned, like every other member of the press corps… that she had lung cancer… Eventually, not that long before she died, the court put out a statement saying that she also had radiation treatments for a recurrence of her pancreatic cancer. And I think all of us at that point knew that she was likely not going to live that much longer. And she still was ferocious in her determination and… all I wanted to do was be a friend to her. And I can’t honestly say that I really thought she was close to death, until she really was close to death. The last time I saw her… she was terribly thin and she kept falling asleep at the table and I thought, we really don’t have a lot more time.”- Nina Totenberg

EpiCH seminar: Context is Key in Public Health: Using Pancreatic Cancer Genomics as an Example [Video]

A person’s background exposures provide the context for the development of his/her disease. Understanding the underlying biological mechanisms important for the development or progression of disease depends on this context. Traditional epidemiologic approaches have relied on stratification or adjustment using regression models, however, this as major limitations when we are dealing with big datasets. This is especially true given the relatively small sample sizes in genomic studies combined with the extraordinarily large number of potential risk factors limits our ability to fully understand an individual’s exposure profile and its impact on biology and disease. In this presentation, I will introduce an integrative analysis framework for understanding disease, using pancreatic cancer as an example, and propose how we can use technology to increase our impact as public health professionals.
