Roxana Moslehi, B.Sc.(Honours), M.Sc., Ph.D

Courses Taught at SUNY:

"Genetic Epidemiology" (EPI 624), Fall 2013

This course will introduce students to the key concepts, theory and practice of genetic epidemiology through in-depth discussions of designs and methodologies involved in conducting family-based and population-based genetic epidemiologic investigations. Principles of genetic counseling and issues pertaining to personalized and genomic-based medicine in the context of public health practice will also be covered. An overview of the currently available software for genetic and genomic analysis will be given. The lecture material will be supplemented with discussion sessions/workshops on the role of genetic mechanisms including gene-gene and gene-environment interactions in the etiology of complex diseases. Articles focusing on design, analytic, or public health aspects of genetic epidemiology will be distributed and discussed in class. Each student is expected to give a presentation at the end of the class on a genetic epidemiologic investigation of a disease of interest. At the conclusion of this course, students will have gained the knowledge and skills necessary for integrating genetic epidemiologic approaches into their own research and/or practice.

Dr. Roxana Moslehi's Genetic Epidemiology lecture 2012
"Masters Seminars in Epidemiology" - (EPI 602), Jan-May 2012

This course is designed to provide assistance and guidance for successful completion of a Masters degree (MS) in Epidemiology and Biostatistics by reviewing the steps involved in conducting research, analyzing data and reporting findings.

Discussions will be expanded to issues pertaining to ethics, scientific/professional writing, and authorship.

The review of principles and concepts will be conducted in the context of the students' actual thesis topics. At the completion of this seminar course, the students are expected to have developed sufficient skills and knowledge for writing and defending their MS thesis as well as to have become prepared for making appropriate decisions towards successful future endeavors in public health research and/or practice.
