Thesis Opportunities, MCH Students

First year MPH students interested in endocrine, cardiometabolic or mental health and gender minority research, as well as those interested in cancer epidemiology are encouraged to reach out to Dr. Goodman.  Dr. Goodman’s group has a large amount of data that can be used for MPH thesis.  Examples of broad research questions include: 

  • Comparison of mental health morbidity in transgender people and individuals diagnosed with disorders (differences) of sex development (a.k.a. intersex).
  • Health status of males with congenital anomalies of external genitalia
  • Cancer incidence in transgender persons compared to cisgender male and female reference groups.
  • Changes in blood lipid concentrations among transgender persons receiving hormone therapy.
  • Incidence and determinants of self-inflicted injuries and poisonings in transgender and cisgender youth.

In addition, there is an opportunity to work with colleagues at the Winship Cancer Institute on a project evaluating use of radiation therapy in pediatric cancer patients. 

If any of those topics are of interest to you, please contact Dr. Goodman directly at mgoodm2 [at] emory [dot] edu
