Human Biology Division

Research Interests

Multidisciplinary research through inter-laboratory communication and collaboration is the basis of the Human Biology division. Interactions across divisional lines are enhanced by the fact that many faculty members hold joint appointments in the Basic Sciences, Clinical Research, or Public Health Sciences divisions and are affiliated with various University of Washington departments.

Investigators in the Division also interact closely with population-based scientists and clinicians studying the genetics and epidemiology of breast, cervical, ovarian, prostate, and esophageal cancers to find better ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat these cancers.
