Research Statement

Thanh Hoang is a member of the Epidemiology and Population Sciences Program at Texas Children's Cancer and Hematology Center. Her research sits at the intersection between environmental health and molecular biology – with a direct application to pediatric populations.

Early in her career, she analyzed genetic and non-genetic factors to improve our understanding of the etiology and survival outcomes of infants with birth defects – conditions that are strongly associated with pediatric cancer. During her postdoctoral fellowship, she gained expertise in examining how environmental toxicants impacts epigenetics throughout the life course, which may inform the development of methylation risk score biomarkers that could be applied to studies of pediatric cancer.

Her long-term research goal is to utilize novel exposure methods to develop a comprehensive approach to evaluate the interplay between environmental exposures and genetic susceptibility on the risk of developing and treating pediatric cancer.
