Title:  Current and Future Diverging Trends in U.S. Premature Mortality Rates by Race/Ethnicity
 
Description:  Dr. Meredith Shiels is a tenure-track investigator in the Infections and Immunoepidemiology Branch of the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) at the National Cancer Institute. She earned her MHS and PhD in cancer epidemiology from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and completed a fellowship at the NCI before becoming an investigator. Dr. Shiels’ research program in DCEG focuses on understanding changes over time in cancer incidence, cancer mortality and premature mortality using large, population-based data resources. She has particular expertise in the epidemiology of cancer among HIV-infected people in the United States, and is the co-principal investigator of the NCI’s HIV/AIDS Cancer Match Study. In addition, Dr. Shiels and colleagues have been working to understand premature mortality rates in the United States during the 21st century, including gender, racial/ethnic, geographic and socioeconomic patterns, as well as identifying the causes of death responsible for diverging trends over time.
