She subsequently focused on cardiovascular research at the National Institutes of Health in the U.S. before assuming a leadership position to guide the implementation of the National Children’s Study. Her current research interests focus on a systems biology approach to carcinogenesis, integrating gene x environment interactions and biophysical signaling in cancer. She does graduate teaching in epidemiology and cancer cell biology. Dr. Knox has published widely and been the recipient of multiple honors and awards. In addition to being on the editorial board of multiple journals, she reviews for a broad range of other medical and scientific journals.
