Yin Cao, ScD, MPH, is a molecular cancer epidemiologist and Associate Professor at Washington University in St Louis and Siteman Cancer Center. Her lab applies rigorous epidemiologic methods and leverages large cohorts, genetic consortia, real-world evidence, and high-throughput technologies to investigate the etiology of early-onset cancers especially early-onset colorectal cancer. Her team also focuses on emerging molecular pathways and prominent issues in early detection, and is committed to bridging the gap between evidence and implementation. She co-leads the Cancer Grand Challenges Team PROSPECT, which aims to uncover the mechanisms linking lifetime exposures to early-onset colorectal cancer, and test new strategies to combat this cancer type.
