Dr. Warren Andersen is an Assistant Professor of Population Health Sciences in the School of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. As a cancer epidemiologist, she is interested in how social determinants, modifiable risk factors, and molecular factors work in concert to influence cancer risk and survivorship. Dr. Warren Andersen’s research interests build upon her previous training. She received her B.S. in Genetics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and later earned a M.S. and Ph.D. in Population Health from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. She completed her postdoctoral fellowship in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center R25 Molecular and Genetic Epidemiology of Cancer (MAGEC) training program.

Dr. Warren Andersen’s research program uses molecular epidemiologic methods to identify determinants for cancer risk and survivorship. Specifically, Dr. Warren Andersen’s research program investigates how differences in the distributions of important tumor characteristics, access to healthcare, and modifiable lifestyle factors may contribute to disparities in colorectal cancer outcomes across populations.
