Veterans Aging Cohort Study (VACS) Cancer Core Co-Director
Dr. Lesley Park is an epidemiologist with strong quantitative, analytical, and programming skills. Her research experience has focused on the intersection of cancer and HIV, examining epidemiologic methods for cancer research, cancer incidence trends, and cancer prevention in persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). Since Lesley received her doctorate, she has been promoted to co-Director of the Veterans Aging Cohort Study (VACS) Cancer Core, overseeing cancer outcomes research in PLWHA.
As a new postdoctoral research fellow at Stanford University, Lesley has been selected to participate in the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Big Data Scientist Training Enhancement Program (BD-STEP) fellowship. Her key focus area is in cancer epidemiologic research design and innovative methods to account for measurement error and misclassification, particularly in evaluating and improving the risks for subsequent cancer and cardiometabolic conditions in cancer survivors. Her research aims to bridge epidemiology and healthcare “big data". Lesley brings 7 years of experience using the national Veterans Health Administration (VHA) electronic health records database.
