Research Interests
Dr. Phipps's research interests span the fields of cancer epidemiology, molecular epidemiology, and clinical epidemiology. Her current projects focus on the relationship between modifiable lifestyle factors (e.g., smoking, obesity) and survival in individuals with biologically-distinct subtypes of colorectal cancer. She also has an interest in molecular subtypes of breast cancer, particularly in risk factors for the poor-prognosis triple-negative subtype of breast cancer.

Teaching Interests
Dr. Phipps co-teaches EPI 515 "Advanced Epidemiologic Methods," offered in the Spring Quarter.
