Lauren McCullough, PhD, MSPH, is Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at Rollins School of Public Health. Dr. McCullough is a member of the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Program at Winship Cancer Institute.
Dr. McCullough earned her PhD from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in North Carolina. She obtained a Master's of Science in Public Health from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee.
The long-term goal of Dr. McCullough's research is to identify molecular targets for weight loss/physical activity intervention and enhanced cancer surveillance. Her research program integrates genetics, epigenetics and other biomarkers for disease risk and progression; environmental and reproductive epidemiology; as well as novel epidemiologic methods. Her current work aims to understand the role of early life exposures on DNA methylation patterns, and whether these changes are sustained throughout adulthood and continue to persist during carcinogenesis.
