Epidemiologist Haile Joins Cancer Institute

Epidemiologist Robert Haile, DrPH, has joined the faculty of the Department of Medicine, Division of Hematology-Oncology, at the Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute. The research scientist also will serve as associate director for Translational Population Science.

Most recently a professor in the Department of Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine, Haile brings to Cedars-Sinai his research expertise in cancer, including several international, multi-institutional studies of breast and colorectal cancer.

"Robert will help solidify our program in areas of cancer epidemiology and cancer health disparities and genetics," said Marc Goodman, PhD, professor of Medicine, director of Cancer Prevention and Control and director of the Community and Population Health Research Center in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at Cedars-Sinai. "He will be a great senior leader here at the cancer institute."

Among a number of significant achievements, Haile founded the Latin American Cancer Epidemiology consortium, whose members include Spain, Puerto Rico, Brazil and Argentina. The group’s goals include trying to reduce the burden of cancer in Latin America and facilitating research in translational genomics and behavioral sciences intervention research.

Haile says he’s excited to work with a collaborative team of physicians and scientists.

"Cedars-Sinai clearly values translational research that will have a positive impact on clinical or public health practice," he added.
