  • Dr. Faupel-Badger is an alumna of the NCI Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program. During her time in the fellowship, she received a Masters of Public Health degree in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from the George Washington University. Her postdoctoral research focused on the hormone prolactin and its role in human breast cancer in the Mammary Biology and Tumorigenesis Laboratory, NCI Center for Cancer Research. Prior to coming to NCI, she completed her PhD in tumor biology at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester, MN.

    Dr. Faupel-Badger joined the scientific staff of the CPFP in July 2008. She also is an adjunct member of the Hormonal and Reproductive Epidemiology Branch and the Epidemiology and Biostatistics Program in the NCI Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, as well as an adjunct faculty member of the Johns Hopkins University Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. Her research interests continue to focus on breast tumorigenesis but have expanded to include the scholarship of teaching and learning, with a particular emphasis on adult education and postgraduate, non-degree granting settings. She is a member of the American Association for Cancer Research; American Association for Cancer Education; and the National Postdoctoral Association. In 2012, she received an NIH Merit Award for her contributions to advancing postdoctoral fellowship training in cancer prevention.
