Quinn Ostrom
Assistant Professor in Neurosurgery

I am a cancer epidemiologist with specialized training in genetic epidemiology. The overall goal of my research program is to identify genetic factors that increase the risk of developing a brain tumor as well as those that affect prognosis after diagnosis. My research focuses on: 1) using population-level cancer registry data for surveillance and risk factor discovery; 2) discovering sources of germline genetic risk for brain tumors and 3) understanding the relationship between immune traits and brain tumor risk and survival. I approach these questions through a research program of interrelated projects and application of novel analytic techniques.
