African American Prostate Cancer Polygenic Risk Score - WCM SPORE

build a multiethnic polygenic risk score for prostate cancer onset, and identify modifiable risk factors associated with the score. this is important for disease screening and public health

Scientific Questions Being Studied

build a multiethnic polygenic risk score for prostate cancer onset, and identify modifiable risk factors associated with the score. this is important for disease screening and public health

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (prostate cancer)

Scientific Approaches

generate a polygenic risk score from all of us data and publicly available gwas summary statistics. regression models will be used to achieve these aims

Anticipated Findings

expect to a cross-ancestry risk model that can be deployed for preventative measures. existing models have poor cross-ancestry portability

Demographic Categories of Interest

  • Race / Ethnicity
