Ruanne Barnabas , MBChB, DPhil

Email: rbarnaba@uw.edu

Phone: 206 520-3813

Dr. Barnabas is an Infectious Disease Physician-Scientist at the University of Washington and affiliate at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Her research focuses on HIV treatment and prevention, specifically on interventions that reduce HIV viral load and, consequently, disease progression and transmission. Her projects use both empiric data and mathematical models to better understand HIV clinical progression and transmission, and estimate the potential impact of HIV interventions at population level. The ultimate aim of her work is to estimate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of HIV treatment and prevention interventions to inform clinical trial design.

Holly Harris , MPH, ScD

Email: hharris@fredhutch.org

Phone: (206) 667-2712

Dr. Harris is broadly interested in the impact of lifestyle, nutrition, and genetic factors on women’s health. Specifically, she has focused on ovarian and breast cancer, as well as on hormonally related conditions that have shared reproductive risk factors with these diseases, including endometriosis and uterine fibroids. Much of her research to date has focused on understanding the role of the potentially modifiable risk factors of diet and lifestyle on the risk of these conditions. A more recent facet of Dr. Harris' research is to explore the interrelatedness of these conditions and their shared risk factors. As ovarian cancer is rare, she is particularly interested in identifying women, such as those with endometriosis or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), who may be at higher risk because these women may benefit from screening modalities for ovarian cancer which are currently not appropriate for population-based use. Identification of women at high risk for ovarian cancer and breast cancer is also important as it allows for targeted prevention strategies and can guide clinical decisions regarding frequency of screening and chemoprevention strategies for both of these cancers. Finally, understanding the influence of genetic factors, both alone or as a part of gene-environment interactions may facilitate prevention and help identify women most at risk for ovarian and breast cancer.
