Funmi Olopade

Walter L. Palmer Distinguished Service Professor of Medicine and Human Genetics, University of Chicago
Professor Funmi Olopade is an internationally-renowned expert in cancer risk assessment and management of the most aggressive forms of breast cancer. Using innovative high throughput genomic technologies and bioinformatics, her laboratory research is focused on molecular mechanisms of cancer through studies of genetic and non-genetic factors contributing to tumor progression in at risk individuals and diverse populations. The overall goal of her research is to accelerate progress in global cancer research, and thereby improve health outcomes by developing novel management strategies based on an understanding of the altered genetic pathways in cancer cells.
