Academic Office Information

Ken Smith, PhD, is an investigator at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI), Distinguished Professor of Family Studies and Population science at the University of Utah, and a member and past-co-leader of the Cancer Control and Population Sciences Program. He is Director of the Pedigree and Population Program at the University of Utah that develops and maintains the Utah Population Database (UPDB), one of the world’s largest resources that links individual-level genealogical, medical and demographic records. UPDB is a powerful and unique shared resource for HCI. He has long-standing interests in familial aspects of cancer, aging and longevity. He is investigating the socio-environmental and genetic origins of aging in humans and exceptional longevity in families. His current work includes a focus on the role of early life events in affecting life chances and cancer and chronic disease outcomes of middle aged and older adults. His other key research interests focus on genetic, psychosocial and behavioral factors in cancer prevention and control and the effects of family, community, and socioeconomic factors affecting cancer and chronic disease risk, obesity, mortality, and longevity of individuals
