Adam Drewnowski , PhD

Email: adamdrew@u.washington.edu

Phone: (206) 543-8016

Dr. Drewnowski's interests are in the characterization of dietary patterns, nutrition economics, spatial distribution of obesity rates; and in the development of new metrics to identify foods that are nutrient dense, affordable and sustainable. He currently examines social determinants of health, focusing on the mechanisms behind the observed social gradient in diet quality and body weight. He has developed new methods to estimate monetary costs of individual diets, opening the door to new research on diet quality in relation to diet cost; and his studies on healthy food access make use of GIS techniques and new methods on spatial epidemiology to determine who shops for food where, why, how far from home and for how much.

Yingye Zheng , PhD

Email: yzheng@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-7580

Dr. Zheng's research interests have been in the statistical methods for longitudinal data with time-to-event outcome, with a focus on using semi-parametric methods for estimating time-dependent ROC curves which are useful for evaluating the ability of longitudinal biomarkers or algorithms to identify cancer early, or signal disease prognosis. Her work is also focused on statistical methods for family-based genetic association studies. She is presently providing support to a number of research proposals and applications in the cancer prevention research program, including serving as an investigator in the DMCC of the Early Detection Research Network.
