Robert A. Hiatt, MD, PhD
Professor, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, UCSF; Associate Director of Population Sciences, UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center
I am Professor and immediate past Chair of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at UCSF and also the Associate Director of Population Sciences for the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. I have a demonstrated record in cancer epidemiology, especially focused on breast cancer, health inequities, environmental health research, global health science, implementation science and in leading successful and productive large-scale, multi-component research projects. As reflected in my publication record, I am strongly interested in the conduct of and training in transdisciplinary, team and translational science and was responsible for developing the PhD program in Epidemiology and Translational Science at UCSF. I was the first deputy director of the National Cancer Institute's Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (1998-2003), where, among other things, I oversaw the extramural cancer epidemiology, health services research and surveillance programs (SEER). I am a past president of the American College of Epidemiology and the American Society of Preventive Oncology. Between 2003 and 2016 I led the Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program and its Coordinating Center in San Francisco and served on the National Academy's Board of Environmental Studies and Toxicology from 2012-2018. Currently at UCSF I am the Principal Investigator of the National Precision Medicine Initiative, All of Us, and I direct the San Francisco Cancer Initiative (SF CAN) on which the current proposal and partnership, BAY CAN, is based.
