Angie Brooks-Wilson leads the Cancer Genetics Laboratory of the Genome Sciences Centre at the British Columbia Cancer Agency. Her current work focuses on the genetics of susceptibility to cancer, particularly lymphoid cancers, in both families and populations, and the genetics of healthy aging. She leads the Genomics, Genetics and Gerontology (G3) Team for the Study of Healthy Aging, in which exceptionally healthy elderly individuals (‘Super-Seniors’) are helping to determine the genetic influences that contribute to healthy aging and protect against age-associated diseases.
