Health, University of Massachusetts Medical School, is a clinical epidemiologist, and
board-certified in both preventive medicine & family medicine. Currently, he is a
co-Principal Investigator of three large, multi-site research projects, which focus on
the comparative effectiveness of colorectal cancer screening tests and on improving the
process of screening for colorectal cancer in community settings. 

Dr. Doubeni has also conducted studies to understand the complex social, biological and
health-care related issues that contribute to disparities in mortality from colorectal
cancer. In October 2011, Dr. Doubeni received a 2010 Presidential Early Career Award for
Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) in recognition of innovative research, mentoring and
community work. This award is bestowed each year upon “…outstanding scientists and
engineers who are beginning their independent research careers, show exceptional
potential for leadership, and have demonstrated a commitment to community service and the
advancement of science, technology, engineering and math education.”
