Raymond N. DuBois, MD, PhD
Michael N. Pollak, MD
The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) has announced the appointments of Raymond N. DuBois, MD, PhD, and Michael N. Pollak, MD, as Editors-in-Chief of Cancer Prevention Research, one of eight journals published by the AACR. Cancer Prevention Research publishes original preclinical, clinical, and translational research on the biology of premalignancy, risk factors and risk assessment, early detection research, and chemopreventive interventions.
Dr. DuBois, Dean of the College of Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina and Professor in the Departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, is an expert in the molecular and genetic basis of colorectal cancer. Much of his work has led to a better understanding of the role of anti-inflammatory agents in the tumor microenvironment and has subsequently resulted in various clinical trials.
Dr. Pollak has served on the editorial board of Cancer Prevention Research since its inception in 2008. He is Director of the Division of Cancer Prevention at McGill University, Montreal, and Professor of Medicine and Oncology. Involved in clinical trials of novel agents related to growth factor targets, Dr. Pollak directs a multidisciplinary research program at the Lady Davis Research Institute, which investigates insulin and insulin growth factor physiology in relation to cancer and provides specialized enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays for epidemiologic and pharmaceutical collaborators. ■
