Bio

Aruna Kamineni, PhD, MPH, began her research at Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute in 2009 with a wealth of experience in chronic disease epidemiology. Dr. Kamineni has expertise in using case-control methods to evaluate screening efficacy, and her research focuses on addressing evidence gaps for clinical guidelines, particularly for cervical and colorectal cancer prevention. A substantial portion of her work has focused on developing infrastructure and methods for research using electronic clinical and administrative health care data.

Since 2011, Dr. Kamineni has participated in the National Cancer Institute’s Population-based Research to Optimize the Screening Process (PROSPR) consortium to evaluate and improve cancer screening in U.S. community settings. As a principal investigator for multisite cervical and colorectal cancer PROSPR Research Centers, Dr. Kamineni is leading and collaborating on work to determine how to optimally use screening tests and consider how to tailor screening for population subgroups.

Dr. Kamineni’s research goals include studying the impact of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA testing and HPV vaccination on cervical cancer and screening programs. Multidisciplinary collaboration is a valued and important driver of Dr. Kamineni’s research and she embraces a team science approach to optimizing cancer prevention.
