Dr. Bhatti's research interests are in occupational and environmental epidemiology of cancer with a focus in biomarkers of exposure, susceptibility and disease. The bulk of his epidemiologic research has focused on genetic suscpetibility to cancer following low dose exposure to occupational or medical ionizing radiation.
