Jeanne Rosenthal, a Vice President for Public Health and Epidemiology, has 40 years of experience directing or managing projects of national significance in chronic disease with a particular focus on cancer. Building on her training in epidemiology, she has carried out feasibility assessment, procedures development, implementation, and data management for a wide range of studies conducted in the U.S. and internationally. Her body of work includes studies with rigorous case-control and cohort designs, large multisite data coordination, and studies with intensive molecular and genetic components.
In the field of cancer epidemiology, Ms. Rosenthal’s work has focused on the association of environmental, occupational, reproductive, genetic, and infectious risk factors with a variety of cancers. This research has led to advances in understanding what causes cancer and leads to better prevention and control. The primary client for Ms. Rosenthal’s work in this field has been the National Cancer Institute.
