About Dr. Cantor
Scott B. Cantor, Ph.D. is a Professor in the Department of Health Services Research at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center . He has adjunct appointments and taught courses and guest lectures in the Department of Statistics at Rice University and the Division of Biostatistics at The University of Texas School of Public Health .
Scott is a clinical decision analyst, having received his bachelor's degree from Yale in Applied Mathematics and his doctorate from Harvard in Decision Sciences. From 2003-2004, he was President of the Society for Medical Decision Making , a professional society dedicated to promoting rational and systematic approaches to decision making that will improve the health and clinical care of individuals and assist health policy formation.
Dr. Cantor's research focuses on theoretical issues concerning cost-effectiveness analysis and diagnostic testing, and on clinical issues in cancer prevention, particularly prostate cancer screening and cervical pre-cancer diagnosis.
When not in the office, Dr. Cantor enjoys spending time with his family and playing the piano. He also loves to sing -- he was a finalist in the recent Anderson Idol Talent Shows.
