Dr. Raymond DuBois has been named executive director of Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute, effective Dec. 1, 2012.

DuBois, a physician and scientist, most recently served as executive vice president and in other roles at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. In Arizona, he will continue his federally-funded research of colon cancer prevention, hold the Dalton Chair in ASU’s School of Health Solutions, and have a faculty appointment at Mayo Clinic.

“I have spent my professional career in academic medicine and I am delighted to be given the opportunity to head up Biodesign at ASU and venture into some very exciting areas that are crucial to the future of the planet,” DuBois said.

DuBois, who will oversee the 350,000-square-foot lab with 10 research centers, replaces Alan Nelson, who now leads ASU’s Predictive Health Analytics Initiative.
