Research Interests

Dr. Danforth has broad interests in health research and has studied a wide range of risk factors (lifestyle factors/questionnaire data, circulating markers, genetic data) and outcomes, including research on urinary incontinence and bladder, ovarian, prostate, endometrial, and colorectal cancers. She has conducted prospective, nested case-control, and cross-sectional analyses of several large cohort studies. Dr. Danforth’s focus on answering practical research questions brought her to Kaiser Permanente, where she participated in the development of a national Kaiser Permanente center on comparative effectiveness and drug safety.
