Elizabeth Yanik, PhD, is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Infections and Immunoepidemiology Branch of the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics at the National Cancer Institute. She received her PhD in epidemiology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and her Master of Science (ScM) in epidemiology from Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Yanik's research broadly focuses on the relationship between immune function and cancer risk, with a specific focus on elevated cancer risk in two immunosuppressed populations: HIV-infected individuals and solid organ transplant recipients. Much of her work involves applying advanced epidemiologic methods to large databases, including disease registries, electronic medical records, and pharmacy and insurance claims.
