PROJECT TITLE

Cancer risk in Smoking Subjects Assessed by Next Generation Sequencing

Project Summary

Assess cancer risk in smoking subjects by NGS profiling of circulating free DNA and RNA. Create a genome database of nonsmoking populations to identify new genes that predispose individuals to cancer.

Expected Outcomes / Outputs

The endpoints of the research proposal are to develop a metric associated with cancer risk in smokers, and to demonstrate potential reversibility upon quitting

Actual / Current Outputs

Deliverable will be available at the end of grant. Work in progress. Pre-prints journal article on bioRXIP https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.06.05.124891v1
