Dr. Conlon and his team’s studies include traditional survey-based research, laboratory-based genetics, and health services research. The studies are large, diverse, and often collaborative in nature, with other researchers and clinicians at local, national, and international levels. Scientific findings are translated at scientific forums and published in scientific journals.
Dr. Conlon’s primary research focus includes examining risk factors for disease and treatment-based outcomes that are important in residents of the Northeast, and also explores important access to care issues in northeastern Ontario populations. Some of the projects involve, the analyses of biological samples obtained from an individual’s saliva, blood or tissues, which may help researchers and clinicians better tailor personal outcomes.
