Faith G. Davis (born 1949)

Faith G. Davis, (born 1949), Professor Epidemiology and Biostatistics, president of the American College of Epidemiology, serves on the Science Advisory Board Radiation Advisory Committee of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Her special interests are brain cancer and ovarian cancer, factors that influence the occurrence and survival of cancer, environmental impact on cancer initiation in human populations. The focus of the research is rare cancers (including brain tumors and ovarian cancers) and environmental exposures, including ionizing radiation. This includes characterizing radiogenic cancer risks associated with low dose and low dose rate environmental exposures.

In addition, she is interested in surveillance-accurate patterns and exposure assessment to better evaluate known animal neurocarcinogens in the environment while developing collaborations to allow for testing environmental hypotheses related to brain tumors in humans.
