Duke Scholar Uses Profits From Book to Fund Cancer Research

Susan Halabi, an associate professor of biostatistics and bioinformatics at the Duke University School of Medicine, is using the profits of her textbook to fund cancer research. Dr. Halabi is an expert in the design and analysis of clinical trails. At Duke she has been working on clinical trials for research on renal, bladder, and prostate cancer.

Dr. Halabi coedited the textbook Oncology Clinical Trials: Successful Design, Conduct, and Analysis with Dr. Kevin Kelly. All proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the Conquer Cancer Foundation. The foundation will, in turn, use the money to fund cancer research.

Dr. Halabi grew up in Venezuela and Lebanon. She is a graduate of the American University of Beirut and holds a Ph.D. from the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at Houston.
