Curt DellaValle, PhD, MPH, is a program director in the Environmental Epidemiology Branch (EEB) of the Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program (EGRP) in NCI’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS). His responsibilities include overseeing a research portfolio of grants and initiatives related to exposure assessment and cancer risk associated with exposure to environmental toxicants.

Before joining EGRP, Dr. DellaValle was a health science administrator and program officer within NIH’s All of Us Research Program. In this position, he coordinated and administered the cooperative agreement for the Data and Research Center for the Research Program and monitored, reviewed, and evaluated scientific progress of awardees related to collection and curation of study participant data and development of the All of Us Research Portal.

Dr. DellaValle first joined NCI in 2010 as postdoctoral fellow in the Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch in the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG), where he developed and conducted epidemiologic studies investigating environmental pollutants and risk of cancer development. He then went on to work as a senior scientist for the Environmental Working Group in Washington D.C. where he led their Cancer Prevention Initiative, a public health program synthesizing and applying knowledge from environmental health, oncology, and integrative medicine. Dr. DellaValle returned to NCI in 2017 as a scientific program analyst for Global Solutions Network, Inc., where he coordinated multiple research projects in cancer epidemiology, genetics, and environmental exposures for DCEG’s Integrative Tumor Epidemiology Branch.
