Shelia Hoar Zahm, Sc.D., received her doctorate in epidemiology from the Harvard School of Public Health and joined the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a staff fellow in 1980.
She was tenured in 1987 in the Occupational Studies Section, became deputy chief of the Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch in 1996, and served as deputy director of the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) from 1998 to 2011. Dr Zahm has received the American Occupational Medical Association's Merit in Authorship Award for a paper on job-exposure matrices, the Harvard School of Public Health Alumni Award of Merit, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary's Award for Distinguished Service, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Merit Award, and the Public Health Service (PHS) Special Recognition Award for her work on the relationship between pesticides and the risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, the NIH Director's Award for her program of research on cancer among migrant and seasonal farmworkers, the NIH Director's Award for developing NIH biospecimen storage and tracking guidelines, the NIH Merit Award for implementation of the NIH Reform Act of 2006, two NIH Quality of Work Life Awards, the DCEG Mentoring Award, and the DCEG Exemplary Service Award. Dr. Zahm serves on the editorial board of several journals and on numerous national and international committees, including service as chair of the United Auto Workers/General Motors Occupational Health Advisory Board. Dr. Zahm was elected to the American Epidemiology Society in 1995 and is an adjunct faculty member at George Washington University. Her research interests include pesticides and cancer, the etiology of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and occupational cancer among women.

"It is always worth making the point that tobacco is the most important exposure to try to eliminate," but that message shouldn't preclude investigation of other exposures, says Shelia Hoar Zahm, deputy director of cancer epidemiology and genetics at the National Cancer Institute.

"We know a lot about what causes cancer on a population level," says Shelia Zahm, ScD, deputy director of the division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics at the National Cancer Institute.
"But with rare exception, we can't say on an individual level, 'This caused your tumor.'" Even the most wicked environmental carcinogens must still find an accomplice within a person's own DNA, she adds. For example, says Zahm, the lymphoma-causing properties of certain pesticides were first suspected after looking at maps. "The cancer maps showed this red belt down rural areas in the center of the U.S.," Zahm says. Zahm asks. "What reporter is going to write a story that says, 'Small Study Finds Nothing,'" Zahm says.
