Lawrence Green, DrPH
Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics
Research on health promotion, including tobacco control, with particular emphasis on knowledge dissemination, transfer, program planning and implementation strategies. His interest is in making practice more evidence-based by making evidence more practice-based. Dr. Green has been the PI on research grants and on predoctoral and postdoctoral training grants from NIH,, the VA , CDC, AHRQ, and the Canadian Institute for Health Research. He has served as primary advisor to numerous fellows under each of these grants at Johns Hopkins University, the University of Texas, and the University of British Columbia. One became the Director of Cancer Control at NCI and is now Dean of the School of Public Health at the University of North Carolina, another became the Director of the Office on Smoking and Health at CDC, and now directs the Institute of Public Health at Georgia State University. Others have had similar research career trajectories. He now serves as a mentor to several fellows and junior faculty at UCSF, UC Berkeley School of Public Health, and to Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars at UCLA, Yale, Penn and the University of Michigan.
