We focus this installment of our blog with a Biodesign Institute update from our executive director, Dr. Ray DuBois, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. DuBois is a world-renowned physician-scientist who has devoted his career to understanding the linkages between inflammation and cancer, particularly colon cancer. He assumed his new role in December of 2012, coming by way of Houston as provost of the prestigious M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

As our “new kid on the block,” DuBois has immersed himself in learning more about the research environment at ASU, met and gotten to know the expertise of our talented and dedicated researchers, and along with them, is formulating the vision of the next phase in the evolution of our institute. Dr. DuBois also has a very active Twitter account, which you can follow here. In this brief video update, DuBois discusses the future of Biodesign, goals for expanding its science, collaboration in Arizona, and worldwide partnerships to make an impact on society.
