Dr. Pal's epidemiology-based cancer genetics research has two foci: identification of individuals with genetic and environmental risk factors that place them at increased risk of developing cancer, and development of strategies to reduce this risk. Her currently active research includes studies on ovarian cancer and mismatch repair deficiency and on genetic and hormonal risk factors for breast cancer in African American women.
