Research Areas

Research Interests

Dr. Jordahl’s current research interests involve the molecular epidemiology of cancer. She has expertise in studies of genome-wide DNA methylation, and her current projects focus on determining if genetic factors influence the risk of experiencing side effects from specific antiretroviral therapy regimens in people living with HIV. In addition, she plans to explore a variety of new research areas during her training.
