About Raymond N. DuBois, Jr., MD, PhD

Dr. Raymond N. DuBois is a renowned physician-scientist and cancer researcher who has made significant contributions to understanding the role of inflammation and inflammatory mediators in the progression of colon cancer and other gastrointestinal malignancies. His work has led to a better understanding of the molecular basis for anti-inflammatory agents, such as aspirin, in reducing cancer risk. It has also led to clinical trials showing how drugs that inhibit this pathway could prevent or intercept the cancerization process. Dr. DuBois has over 160 peer-reviewed research articles out of 274 publications, more than 72 review articles, 25 book chapters, and three books during his career, and his work has been cited over 70,000 times with an H-index of 120. He is also a co-inventor of a method to identify and target cellular genes needed for viral growth and cellular genes that function as tumor suppressors in mammals, which led to the creation of a biotech company that utilized this technology to discover new drug targets for the treatment of cancer and viral infections. DuBois has been recognized with numerous awards for his cancer research, including the Richard and Hinda Rosenthal Research Award, the Dorothy P. Landon-AACR Cancer Prize, the Margaret Foti Award for Leadership and Extraordinary Achievements in Cancer Research, the AACR Distinguished Service Award, and the Anthony Dipple Carcinogenesis Award from Oxford University Press. He was inducted as a National Academy of Medicine member in 2019. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Academy of the American Association for Cancer Research, the American Gastroenterology Association, and the Royal College of Physicians (London). In addition, he currently holds the position of Executive Chair of the Mark Foundation for Cancer Research and was previously Vice Chair of the Stand Up to Cancer Foundation as well as President and Chair of the AACR Foundation Board. Dr. DuBois earned a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry with honors from Texas A&M University, a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, and a medical degree from The University of Texas School of Medicine in San Antonio. In addition, he completed his internship/residency in medicine and a gastroenterology fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he studied under Nobel Laureate Daniel Nathans as a Howard Hughes Research Associate.
