Dr. Beth Karlan is a gynecologic oncologist and clinician-scientist with long-standing interests in hereditary cancers and molecular drivers of ovarian cancer. Recognizing the heterogeneity of ovarian cancer, she seeks to identify subtyped-specific biomarkers for early detection, prognostication and personalized therapies. She is also active in studying inherited cancer risks due to genes like BRCA to better understand ovarian cancer etiology, improve prevention strategies and identify novel targets for prevention and treatment.
