Dr. Deveaux earned a BS in Clinical Laboratory Science and an MD from UNC Chapel Hill, along with a PhD in Genetics from Howard University. After graduating from medical school in 2015, she returned to the lab and completed a post-doctoral program. A molecular geneticist by training, April’s research focuses on cancer health disparities, specifically on the molecular mechanisms in prostate and lung cancers. Her work at Population Health will probe the role that social determinants of health play in the biology of cancer disparities.
