Research Interests

Passionate about addressing health disparities, Dr. Mazul has a K award that focuses on unraveling the intricate pathways through which socioeconomic status and modifiable risk factors impact cancer genomics and, consequently, population health. With a keen interest in reducing health disparities, she is actively working towards developing a case-control study with prospective follow-up of patients in Western Pennsylvania. Through her groundbreaking work, Dr. Mazul contributes significantly to our understanding of the complex interactions shaping head and neck cancer outcomes and risk and, ultimately, advancing strategies to improve cancer care.
