2016_June Chan2June M. Chan ScD

Professor, Departments of Epidemiology &  Biostatistics and Urology

University of California San Francisco

 

June M. Chan is Professor of Epidemiology & Biostatistics and Urology at University of California San Francisco (UCSF). She obtained degrees in Applied Math in Biology and Epidemiology at Harvard University, where she also completed her postdoctoral fellowship. She was awarded the Steven and Christine Burd-Safeway Distinguished Professorship at UCSF in 2009.

Her research is focused on understanding how diet, exercise, other lifestyle factors and genetics contribute to prostate cancer progression, aggressiveness, and death. Her team aims to identify risk-reduction strategies for men with or at high risk for prostate cancer, evaluate novel molecular markers of prostate cancer aggressiveness to improve screening, diagnosis or prognosis of clinically relevant disease, and improve cancer survivorship for men with prostate cancer worldwide.

She leads or co-leads clinical trials among different populations of men with prostate cancer, evaluating interventions on supervised and unsupervised exercise, decision support, websites to promote healthy habits, and wearable activity trackers. She also oversees efforts to improve prediction of aggressive prostate cancer at the time of diagnosis, using tumor biomarkers, germline genetics, and clinical and lifestyle factors. She developed the Diet & Lifestyle sub-study with the national Cancer of the Prostate Strategic Research Endeavor (CaPSURE), and has collaborated on prostate cancer investigations within the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, the Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial (SELECT), and the Endogenous Hormones, Nutritional Biomarkers and Prostate Cancer Collaborative Group.
