About Me

Biography:

Dr. Eng is a cancer geneticist and statistician with broad expertise in immunology, genetics, epidemiology and informatics. His research group combines a traditional bench laboratory and a computational group to execute translational studies in ovarian and prostate cancers. Dr. Eng earned his PhD and MS from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and ScB from Brown University. Dr. Eng studied statistical genomics, bioinformatics and ovarian cancer during his postdoctoral training at Wisconsin. Combining genomics, informatics and immunology, Dr. Eng has recently received an NIH career award (K award) developed through awards from the ovarian cancer SPORE and the Roswell Park Alliance Foundation.

Research

Research Overview:

We are a data science group and research laboratory that plans, coordinates, manages and analyzes studies across all areas of ovarian cancer research. Most of our work focuses on basic, translational and clinical studies at the intersection of genomics, informatics and immunotherapy for ovarian cancer.

RPCI Ovarian Cancer Study. We manage an ongoing study of over 1,400 women treated for ovarian cancer at RPCI using modern EHR based data abstraction. We often collaborate with residents and fellows to explore new ideas and test their hypotheses.

Familial Ovarian Cancer Registry. We assist in data management and research in this ongoing study of over 50,000 people, 5,600 ovarian cancers, 2,700 families tackling the genetic origins of hereditary ovarian cancer and studying the environmental and genetic effect that may alter predisposition to ovarian and other cancers in these families.
