Logan G. Spector's research focuses on the causes of childhood leukemia, hepatoblastoma, and osteosarcoma. He works in collaboration with colleagues and trainees locally, nationally and internationally through the University of Minnesota, Children's Oncology Group and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. In addition, Dr. Spector collaborates with departmental colleagues in endocrinology, cardiology, and neonatology to study other pediatric outcomes. Dr. Spector is Chair of the Children's Oncology Group Epidemiology Committee; a standing member of the NIH Cancer, Cardiovascular, and Sleep Epidemiology Study Section; and an ad hoc reviewer for several journals, including the American Journal of Epidemiology; Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers, and Prevention; and Paediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology.

Training and experience: Dr. Spector received his Ph.D. in Epidemiology in 2002 from Emory University, where he conducted his dissertation research on childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. After a year as a National Cancer Institute-funded postdoctoral fellow at the University of Minnesota, he joined the faculty as Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Epidemiology/Clinical Research at the University of Minnesota.
