演讲嘉宾简介



纪建光-W.jpg



     纪建光

      流行病学副教授

      瑞典隆德大学初级保健护理研究中心


      纪先生的研究领域主要是基因和环境因素对慢性疾病的影响,尤其关注癌症发生率和死亡率。他使用全国登记信息和全国及地区的调查信息研究不同种类的癌症与基因和环境因素的关系。可以在诸多高水平期刊上,如柳叶刀肿瘤学、美国国家科学院院刊等找到纪先生的研究论文。

      他的研究还包括罹患癌症的家庭成员是否有相似的生存体验,是此项领域最初的研究者之一。结论发现癌症的预后有较强的遗传因果关系。


     演讲摘要:

      本演讲将介绍瑞典全国登记系统,包括瑞典癌症登记处、瑞典病人登记处和瑞典全国人口普查数据。通过分析这些登记信息,我们可以发现不同职业的个人罹患不同类型癌症的情况。他还将举两个例子,并讨论使用注册信息的优势和劣势。

Jianguang Ji

MD, PhD

Associate professor in Medical Epidemiology

Center for Primary Health Care Research

Lund University


My research has a strong focus on the influence of genetic and environmental factors on chronic diseases, with a main focus on cancer incidence and mortality. I have used data from nationwide registers and national and regional surveys to shed new light on potential genetic and environmental factors associated with the development of various types of cancer. Results from my research studies can be found in highly ranked journals, such as The Lancet Oncology, J National Cancer Inst, Circulation, and PNAS. 

I was one of the first researchers to explore whether family members with cancers share common survival experience (good or poor prognosis). The findings indicated that cancer prognosis have strong heritable causation.


Speech Abstract:

The presentation will give a short introduction of the Swedish nationwide registers, including the Swedish Cancer Register, the Swedish Patient Register, and the National Census data. By linking these registers, we can look at the incidence of various cancers among individuals with different occupations, and I will give two examples by using such strategy. I further discussed the strengths and limitations of study using register-based data.
