Interests: Cancer risks assessment; occupational epidemiology methodology; under-investigated populations study
Studies of cancer in occupational settings have contributed greatly to our understanding of cancer risk. About one third of the factors identified as definite or probable human carcinogens were first investigated in the workplace. However, there are many current occupational exposures that are putative carcinogens, and many new and emerging exposures that make further research in this area necessary. Additionally, much of our understanding about occupational cancer has been obtained from studies largely composed of white men in developed countries. The movement of industry from developed to developing countries underscores the need for future investigations to include more diverse populations.
For this special issue on Occupational Cancer, we would be happy to consider papers that report on a variety of topics. Reports of particular interest include results from epidemiologic investigations, including those that incorporate molecular techniques. We are also interested in reports on occupational exposure assessment methods and would consider papers that summarize the knowledge on a particular topic such as specific occupational exposures or jobs/workplaces.
