Dr. Joshu’s research focuses on three areas: 1) Identifying modifiable risk factors for the recurrence of prostate cancer in men who underwent surgery for clinically localized disease. 2) Assessing whether the inherited risk of colon cancer can be reduced via changes in modifiable risk factors for this cancer. 3) Determining how chronic conditions influence cancer incidence, mortality, and case-fatality, as well their influence on cancer screening behavior.
