  • Research Interest

    Dr. O’Malley is interested in disease surveillance, breast(both males and females), ovarian, colon and lung cancers. She has focused much of her research on cancer outcomes, particularly the interplay between comorbidity, treatment and survival.

    Research Interest

    Evaluating factors associated with racial disparities in prostate and breast cancer diagnosis, progression and survival.
    Evaluating genetic factors and gene/environment interactions involved in prostate and breast cancer incidence, progression and survival.
    Assessing quality of life and survivorship issues two or more years after diagnosis.
    Providing information and community-based solutions to improve public health.

  • Professor of Health Research & Policy (Biostatistics) and, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering and of Statistics
    Member, Bio-X
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Research Interest

    My research is in statistics and their applications to medicine and biology. Many efforts have concerned tree-structured algorithms for classification, regression, survival analysis, and clustering.

    Clinical Focus
    • Cutaneous (Dermatologic) Oncology
    • Dermatology
    • Skin Cancer
    Research Interest

    Our lab uses the skin to answer questions about epithelial stem cell biology, differentiation and carcinogenesis using genomics, genetics, and cell biological techniques. We have studied how hedgehog signaling regulates regeneration and skin cancer, and how tumors evolve to develop resistance. We study the mechanisms of early human skin development using human embryonic stem cells. These fundamentals studies provide a greater understanding of epithelial biology and novel disease therapeutics.

    Clinical Focus
    • Internal Medicine
    Research Interest

    My research uses decision analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, and meta-analysis to evaluate clinical and health policy problems.
