Prof Melissa B Davis - Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, USA

Prof Melissa Davis speaks to ecancer at the Global Health Catalyst Summit 2019 at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts about her international breast cancer research across the African Diaspora.

She does this work in order to identify some of the genetic and molecular phenotypes which might explain some of the disparities we see in breast cancer mortality.

Prof Davis provides some examples of projects currently underway in Africa and America, and some of the emerging trends. She finishes by explaining why these kinds of genomic studies are important and lead the way to groundbreaking treatment options.
