Austin L. Brown, PhD, MPH
Austin Brown is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine and Co-Director of the Long-term Survivor Research Program at Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Center. He leads a research program focused on characterizing the acute and long-term adverse effects of pediatric cancer therapy.
Primarily, he is interested in how treatment exposures interact with host genetic factors to contribute to disparities in therapeutic complications among pediatric cancer patients. His lab uses metabolomic, proteomic, epigenomic, and genomic technology to identify molecular networks and biomarkers involved in the development of treatment-related toxicity in pediatric oncology patients.
His professional interests include: cancer survivorship, childhood cancer, cancer treatment toxicity, and molecular epidemiology.
