Briseis Aschebrook-Kilfoy

Research Summary
Associate Professor of Population and Precision Health, Department of Public Health Sciences Steering Committee, The Institute for Population and Precision Health (IPPH) Director, The Epidemiology Research and Recruitment Core, UCCCC Co-Director, The Integrated Health Sciences Facility Core, CACHET Co-Director, The Community Engagement Core, CACHET The University of Chicago The major focus of Dr. Aschebrook-Kilfoy's research is to elucidate the role of environmental, lifestyle, and genetic factors in the development of cancer and chronic disease. She received training in environmental, chronic disease, and cancer epidemiology, with specific training and expertise in key research areas to study the impact of the urban exposome on population and precision health. As a postdoctoral fellow at the National Cancer Institute in the Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch, She led multiple projects addressing environmental exposures, genetic risk, and chronic disease. A major focus of her work was evaluating nitrate (from dietary and water sources), pesticides, and other persistent organic pollutant exposure on cancer risk. Dr. Aschebrook-Kilfoy has extensive training and experience conducting environmental exposure assessments using both traditional and molecular approaches. As an Associate Professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences at the University of Chicago, she has been developing epidemiologic resources and cohorts to study the impact of the environment on human health in Chicago and beyond as the Director of the Epidemiology Research and Recruitment Core and as a Co-Investigator on key Institute for Population and Precision Health (IPPH) projects including the Chicago Multiethnic Prevention and Surveillance Study, the All of Us Research Program and the NCI Connect Study. She is PI of the largest thyroid cancer survivorship study to date- The North American Thyroid Cancer Survivorship Study. As a Co-investigator in the Chicago Center for Health and the Environment (CACHET) and Co-Director of the CACHET Integrated Health Sciences Facility Core (a NIEHS P30 center core), Dr. Aschebrook-Kilfoy has been doing extensive work on the integration of novel air pollution monitoring technologies into large population health studies from the South Side of Chicago to Bangladesh. She is also the contact mPI of a NIEHS funded R25 training program to promote EHS studies and careers by engaging underrepresented undergraduates in Chicago in EHS research (Up on EHS).
