Lucile Adams-Campbell joined the Georgetown University Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center in 2008 as associate dean for Community Health and Outreach. Previously, she had served as director of the Howard University Cancer Center for 13 years. She also serves as the co-principal investigator for the Black Women’s Health Study. She focuses on community outreach and community-based participatory research, particularly cancer-related health disparities in minority populations, with an emphasis on cancer prevention. Her research interests include understanding the biological basis of health disparities in those cancers that disproportionately affect minority and underserved populations via clinical trials; cancer epidemiology using minority cohorts; and behavioral epidemiology as it relates to physical activity and nutrition interventions. She aims to export prevention-based clinical trials and behavioral interventions targeting nutrition and exercise strategies to address obesity from the laboratory setting into the community. Dr. Adams-Campbell was elected to the Institute of Medicine in 2008. She currently serves on the editorial board of or as a reviewer for eight journals. Dr. Adams-Campbell received an M.S. in biomedical science from Drexel University and a Ph.D. in epidemiology from the University of Pittsburgh. She completed a National Institutes of Health-funded postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh.
