Dr. Cheryl Peters has accepted a new position as a Senior Scientist with the BC Centers for Disease Control/BC Cancer Agency. Her last day with CEPR will be January 14, 2022. In this new position, Dr. Peters will be responsible for developing primary and secondary cancer prevention programs, research and policy directions and evaluation of provincial systems for cancer prevention and control. She will also be developing, implementing and leading an academic vision for Population and Public Health at UBC in the Occupational and Environmental Health division. We would like to wish Dr. Peters success in this newly created position.
During her nearly four years with CEPR, Dr. Peters has established a robust program of research in occupational and environmental cancer with many national and international collaborations. Since March 2021, Dr. Peters has been on a leave of absence working with the International Agency for Research on Cancer’s Monographs program and doing research with her colleague, Dr. Paul Villeneuve at Carleton University. We would like to thank Dr. Peters for her numerous contributions to the research success and productivity of our department and to the University of Calgary as well. She will be continuing in her academic roles at the University of Calgary after her departure. Best wishes Cheryl!
