PERLMUTTER CANCER CENTER

Meet Dr. Jiyoung Ahn: Associate Director, Population Sciences

Dr. Ahn’s approach is to attack cancer before it presents itself. Diet, genetics, and the environment: These all have a role in causing cancer. She’s looking into specific bacteria in the microbiome related to the subsequent development of cancer. Dr. Ahn is discovering how we can provide tailored nutritional guidelines based on a person’s genetic, hormonal, or biological makeup.
We can cure cancer. In our lifetime.
