He will collaborate with researchers worldwide.
Alberto Caban-Martinez, Ph.D., D.O., M.P.H., has been inducted as a fellow in the Collegium Ramazzini, a prestigious international scientific organization focused on occupational and environmental disease prevention. As a fellow, Dr. Caban-Martinez, deputy director of Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Firefighter Cancer Initiative, joins eminent physicians and scientists from around the world to advance occupational and environmental health.
“This induction as fellow has been a humbling and invigorating experience,” he said. “There are so many opportunities to protect people at their place of work, and sometimes it takes years of research to figure out what to actually do. The physicians and scientists in the collegium are world leaders in occupational and environmental health, and I feel honored to just be around them.”
Dr. Caban Martinez’s induction into the Collegium Ramazzini will provide new opportunities to share Sylvester’s firefighter cancer research and learn from other occupational medicine physicians and scientists. Each year, the organization holds a Ramazzini Days symposium, which showcases research from around the world. The organization is named after Dr. Bernardino Ramazzini (1633– 1714), the father of occupational medicine and one of the first to embrace the scientific method.
