About Mary Reid


Dr. Reid is the Chief of Cancer Screening, Survivorship and Mentorship at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center and a key member of the Roswell Park team that is collaborating with Cuban scientists on Cimavax. She is also currently a Professor of Oncology in the Department of Medicine. As Chief of Cancer Screening, Survivorship and Mentorship, Dr. Reid has worked to expand Roswell Park’s pioneering Lung Cancer Screening program and develop other cancer screening initiatives within the Institute, working with clinical departments to increase the colon and breast screening programs. Dr. Reid is also developing a comprehensive survivorship clinical and outreach program.

Prior to joining Roswell Park, she served as Assistant Professor in the Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, College of Public Health and Co-Director of the Cancer Prevention and Control Training Program at the Arizona Cancer Center in Tucson.

She has authored or co-authored more than 95 publications, serves as a regular reviewer for several cancer, nutrition and epidemiology journals and as a regular adhoc reviewer for several National Cancer Institute grant mechanisms.

Research Overview:

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 is active in steering the High Risk Lung Cancer Screening Clinic at Roswell Park, where high risk patients are screened with CT and a bronchoscopy that combines standard white light with autofluorescent imaging. She has experience with chemoprevention trials including wheat bran fiber, selenium. Currently, she directs two ongoing trials in lung cancer prevention at Roswell Park. One ongoing trial is testing a form of Vitamin D. Dr. Reid, in collaboration with Candace Johnson, PhD and Donald L. Trump, MD, has obtained NCI funding to conduct a phase I toxicity study and a randomized, placebo controlled phase II clinical trial to supplement high risk current and former smokers with confirmed premalignant lesions of the lung. In addition, Dr. Reid and Alex Adjei, MD, PhD, have received funding to use low doses of a therapeutic agent, erlotinib, in aerodigestive cancer survivors who are found to have premalignant lesions on screening. The patients will be given progressively lower doses of this agent to assess the effectiveness of treatment on genetic markers in the lung and to assess the level of toxicity at these low doses.

Dr. Reid is also heading an effort with the Dental and Head and Neck clinical team to screen high risk head and neck cancer patients with conventional white light and autofluorescent imaging. These screening efforts have led to the involvement in NCI-sponsored clinical chemoprevention trials using new agents for the prevention of progression of premalignant lesions. Dr. Reid is also involved in biomarkers studies of early oral lesions and the risk of progression to cancer.
