EVENT DESCRIPTION  
 
Event Type:  Webinar (This is an NIH Science event)
 
Title:  Molecular Epidemiology of Epstein-Barr Virus Co-Infection in Gastric Carcinogenesis
 
Description:  Dr. Charles Rabkin earned an Sc.B. and M.D. from Brown University and an M.Sc. in epidemiology from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He received postgraduate training at the University of Colorado and is board certified in internal medicine and preventive medicine. Before coming to the NCI, he was an Epidemic Intelligence Service Officer and a medical epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He has received PHS Commendation and Unit Commendation Medals for his studies of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and Kaposi sarcoma and the Outstanding Service Medal for the molecular epidemiology of Helicobacter pylori and HIV-related malignancies.

Dr. Rabkin’s research is directed toward understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying associations of chronic infection and inflammation, particularly for gastric cancer and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

His work in gastric cancer encompasses three sub-projects on the pathogenic microbes, modifying host factors and intermediate markers with potential for screening of gastric cancer and pre-neoplastic lesions. He has a particular focus on the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) as a co-factor with Helicobacter pylori, the established cause of most cancers of the noncardia stomach. His work in Non-Hodgkin lymphoma focuses on the acquired and inherited abnormalities of immune cells that may contribute to their malignant transformation.

Dr. Rabkin will be presenting on the molecular epidemiology of Epstein-Barr virus co-infection in gastric carcinogenesis.
