Heredity and Cancer: A Family Affair
Sadly, many of us have been there: A cancer diagnosis hits a family member, and after the initial shock and grief, you can’t help but wonder: Is it hereditary? Am I going to get it too? In this hour-long lecture, cancer molecular biologist Chris Hickey will share why certain members of families experience the same type of cancer diagnosis. Additionally, this presentation discusses the ways different cancers can share a common genetic link that can impact multiple generations of a family. Finally, the presentation discusses the prevalence of commonly known cancers among certain populations and ethnic groups. The content is organized by cancer type and identifies specific genes that contribute to the malignancies among these groups of people.
