About

Dr. Will King is a molecular epidemiologist, with a PhD in Epidemiology from McGill University.

Research

The objective of Dr. King's research program is to identify modifiable risk factors for cancer, with an ultimate goal of disease prevention at a population level. His research projects utilize intermediate markers of cancer risk and markers of genetic susceptibility to investigate environment-cancer relationships - including studies of environmental factors in relation to DNA methylation, DNA adducts and telomere length. Exposures of interest include disinfection by-products, meat derived carcinogens, UV radiation and physical activity. Dr. King is also a member of a research collaboration interested in the burden of cancer due to modifiable risk factors in Canada.
