About Bernard Kwabi-addo

Dr. Kwabi-Addo is an Associate Professor of Biochemistry at Howard University College of Medicine in Washington D.C. He earned his PhD degree in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry from Queen Mary and Westfield College (University of London, England). The focus of Dr. Kwabi-Addo’s research activities is to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying prostate cancer and the disease disparities. He has expertise is finding epigenetic-mediated gene regulation and prostate cancer risk in African American men. Dr. Kwabi-Addo’s work has revealed differential epigenetic changes that are associated with aggressive disease milieu and cancer disparities. The goal of this current work is to identify novel “ethnic-sensitive” markers that maybe useful for prostate cancer detection and the disease progression in minority population.

As the author of three important public health books “Cancer Causes and Controversies” (Praeger 2011); “Health Outcomes in a Foreign Land” (Springer, 2017), and more recently “Check The FATS- Eliminate Chronic Diseases” (Epigenovix, 2021), Dr. Kwabi-Addo is engaged in community educational programs in various settings including radio talk shows, TV interviews, church, and other community outreach events where he discusses cancer prevention and early detection and advocates for approaches to improve health equity and avoidance of chronic diseases.
