Laura A. Siminoff, Ph.D.

Laura A. Siminoff, Ph.D. joined Temple University in March 2014 as the Dean of the College of Public Health. She is a renowned social scientist, with research focusing on cancer treatment decision making and communication, informed consent, health disparities, bioethics, and organ and tissue donation.

Continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health for more than 20 years, she is one of the most highly ranked NIH funded researchers in the nation. With her leadership, Temple’s College of Public Health is poised for tremendous growth and achievement.

“Health research is now a team science, and we’ve come to understand how people maintain their health is complicated. It is a process between behavior, environment, genes, culture, and other factors, and we are training teams to come up with answers to some of our most complicated and pressing questions, issues, and concerns.”

- Laura A. Siminoff, Ph.D.

Today, we are an integrated college both in terms of education and research, across this spectrum of disciplines, which is not the traditional way that public health higher education institutions typically function. But if we consider where we are moving as a nation and as a field, I think this is the way to move forward and puts CPH ahead of the curve.
