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.
