Biography

Mr. Sunny Siddique is a Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA) Fellow with the Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program’s (EGRP) Clinical and Translational Epidemiology Branch (CTEB). In this role, he provides research support for a number of projects related to the identification of clinical, lifestyle, and genomic factors that influence cancer progression, recurrence, and survival. Mr. Siddique is particularly interested in gene-environment interactions, age-related decline, and cancer treatment outcomes.

Prior to joining EGRP, Mr. Siddique earned a Master of Public Health in epidemiology with a certificate in advanced epidemiology and biostatistics from Columbia University. He completed a Bachelor of Arts degree from Princeton University, where he studied molecular biology and completed a certificate program in global health and health policy.

While completing his graduate degree, Mr. Siddique worked as a research assistant at the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center (HICCC) in New York City, where he analyzed medical records of cancer patients to better understand disease comorbidities and health outcomes, along with neighborhood-level differences using tumor registry datasets.

Through Princeton’s Global Health Scholars Program, Mr. Siddique also conducted ethnographic research on transgender health and evaluated Health Ministry-funded medical programs to reduce complications following sex reassignment surgery in South Asia. Mr. Siddique is originally from Bangladesh and grew up in Atlanta, GA.
