Mark E. Sherman, M.D., employs molecular pathology and epidemiologic study designs to evaluate the etiology, behavior and consequences of gynecological cancers, breast cancers and their precursors in diverse populations.
Improving risk assessment and mechanisms underlying risk of gynecological cancers and breast cancer may enable the future development of "precision prevention" approaches to cancer. In these approaches, levels of risk and mechanisms of risk inform best strategies to negate threats posed by cancer through appropriate frequency and methods of screening, lifestyle changes, use of chemoprevention (delivered with efficacy while minimizing adverse events) and risk-reducing surgery.
