Dr. Caryn Lerman, Director of USC Norris and the H. Leslie and Elaine S. Hoffman Professor in Cancer Research, is renowned for her work in cancer prevention. Her approach merges neuroscience, pharmacology, genetics, and behavioral science.

Notably, she generated the initial empirical data on genetic testing outcomes for cancer susceptibility. Lerman’s research sheds light on the genetic causes of cancer risk behaviors.

Her studies led to the first prospective stratified pharmacogenomic trial for tobacco dependence, revolutionizing precision medicine in tobacco addiction treatment.
