Susan Pinney

Dr. Susan M. Pinney received her PhD from the University of Cincinnati and is a professor of Epidemiology at UC.  She conducts a variety of large molecular epidemiology studies, with research focused on the genetic epidemiology of lung cancer, environmental factors that influence the age at pubertal milestones, and health effects of uranium exposure. Since 1990 she has been the Research Director of the Fernald Community Cohort with data and biospecimens collected over 18 years which have been used for over 20 research studies. Dr. Pinney is the Deputy Director of the Center for Environmental Genetics and a Program Leader of the Cincinnati Cancer Center.
