About Mary Reid
Dr. Reid is the Chief of Cancer Screening, Survivorship and Mentorship at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. In her more than 20 years at Roswell Park, Dr. Reid is a Distinguished Professor of Oncology in the Department of Medicine and a key member of the Roswell Park scientific team that is collaborating with Cuban scientists on CIMAvax. As Chief of Cancer Screening and Survivorship, Dr. Reid has worked to expand Roswell Park’s pioneering Lung Cancer Screening program and develop other cancer screening initiatives within the Institute and in the communities of Western New York, working closely with clinical departments and community providers, to increase the lung, colon and breast screening compliance. Dr. Reid has also established a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary survivorship clinical and outreach program.
Prior to joining Roswell Park, she received her PhD in Cancer Epidemiology at the University of Arizona in Tucson in 1996. She held the rank of Assistant Professor in the Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, at the College of Public Health and Co-Director of the NCI Cancer Prevention and Control Training Program.
She has authored or co-authored more than 120 publications, five book chapters, and serves as a regular reviewer for several cancer, nutrition and epidemiology journals as well as a regular adhoc reviewer for several National Cancer Institute grant mechanisms.

Dr. Reid’s research interests focus on the early detection and chemoprevention of lung and head and neck cancers, and the evaluation of genetic/epigenetic biomarkers of early lesions in high-risk populations. Dr. Reid oversees the High-Risk Lung Cancer Screening Program at Roswell Park, where high risk patients across the region are screened and recruited to studies using imaging and bronchoscopy, allowing for the collection of biospecimens for biomarker analyses. She has experience with chemoprevention trials including wheat bran fiber, selenium, celecoxib, erlotinib and vitamin D. Currently, Dr. Reid is working on early phase clinical trials in the prevention of lung cancer and recurrence using CIMAvax, a vaccine developed in Cuba and Metformin.
Finally, based on the clinical programs in Screening and survivorship, Dr. Reid is an investigator on studies related to barriers to screening, methodology for implementing new community-based programs, and biomarkers and treatment strategies for long term symptom management among survivors.
