Research Interests

Dr. Schwartz primarily studies the etiology and outcomes of cancer. A major objective of his research is to determine the influence of genetic susceptibility, either alone or in combination with lifestyle and environmental risk factors. Current funded research projects include studies focusing on the genetic and non-genetic risk factors for HPV-cancers and testicular germ cell tumors. Other areas of cancer research focus on molecular markers for oral cancer outcomes and the health and well-being of adolescent and young adult cancer survivors. Among his other responsibilities in the field of cancer epidemiology, he serves as Principal Investigator of the Cancer Surveillance System, a population-based cancer registry at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
