Lindsay A. Williams completed her PhD at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the Department of Epidemiology in 2017. Her dissertation work characterized etiologic differences in the histologic and molecular subtypes of breast cancer with respect to reproductive risk factors. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Minnesota where she focused on identifying etiologic differences in histologic and molecular subtypes of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia and germ cell tumors. Her current research centers on identifying sex differences in childhood cancer risk, incidence, and survival. Specifically, she is studying sex differences in genetic risk factors for a number of childhood cancer types. She also studies the epidemiology and genetics of pediatric brain tumors.
