Nicola J. Camp, PhD

Professor, Internal Medicine

Senior Research Director, Utah Population Database

Co-Director, STARS Training Program

Nicola J. Camp, PhD, is a professor in the Departments of Medicine (Division of Hematology and Hematologic Malignancies) and Human Genetics at the University of Utah School of Medicine. She is a Huntsman Cancer Institute investigator, and a member of the Cancer Control and Population Sciences program. As a genetic epidemiologist/statistical geneticist, her research interests include the identification of heritable genetic risk variants and the development of novel methods.

The identification of inherited genetic risk variants is critical in understanding disease mechanisms. However, such discoveries are challenging for complex diseases. Novel methods and study designs play essential roles in addressing these challenges. Certainly there is no guarantee that a new method will produce a leap of knowledge; however, it can be high-impact and cutting edge when it does. The hope is that a better understanding of inherited genetic risk will lead to improvements in prevention, detection, diagnosis, and treatment strategies. Camp’s current research focuses on the identification of germ-line genetic variants that increase susceptibility to breast cancer, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and multiple myeloma (MM) and her projects include: whole exome and whole genome massively parallel sequencing in a high-risk CLL pedigree; high-density genomewide SNP genotyping in CLL, MM and controls; and apoptosis candidate pathway genotyping and sequencing in high-risk breast cancer and controls. These projects often involve multi-disciplinary collaborations across campus, in addition to joint research performed within the context of large, national and international consortia.

Camp received her PhD in statistical genetics from the University of Sheffield, UK. She received post-doctoral training in molecular and genetic medicine at the University of Sheffield Medical School, UK. In the past, Camp served on the Graduate Council as the School of Medicine representative and on the University Academic Senate. She has received the Reed Gardner Award for Faculty Excellence, has been honored by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society for her research and is a recipient of a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers. She currently acts on the editorial board of two genetics journals and is a member of the American Society of Human Genetics, the American Association for Cancer Research and the International Genetic Epidemiology Society.

Research Statement

Nicola J. Camp, PhD, joined the University of Utah in 1998. She is a Mathematician-Statistician trained in genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics in the United Kingdom. She is a Professor in the Division of Hematology and Hematological Malignancies, Department of Medicine, University of Utah School of Medicine and a cancer investigator at Huntsman Cancer Institute in the Cancer Control and Population Sciences research program. She also leads HCI's Womens’ Disease Oriented Team with David Gaffney, MD. Her research focuses on the identification of inherited genetic mutations that increase risk to cancers, specifically breast cancer and hematological malignancies. She often uses the rich genealogy in the Utah Population Database (UPDB) together with cancer diagnoses from the Utah Cancer Registry to study large cancer families. Using her mathematical background, Nicola also develops new statistical methods for genetic studies. Nicola has authored more than 140 publications and mentored over 40 students from the molecular biology, biomedical informatics, and MSTAT programs.
