Dr. Pete DelNero

Dr. Pete DelNero is an assistant professor with the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute at the University of Arkansas for Medical Science. His work focuses on cancer control research in the Cancer Institute’s catchment area. The ‘catchment area’ is the geographic area that is served through research, treatment, and outreach activities. A better understanding of the catchment area can improve the implementation of evidence-based programs to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to be as healthy as possible. 

Dr. DelNero is originally from Leawood, Kansas. He received a bachelor’s in chemical engineering at Vanderbilt University, a master’s in public health at Harvard, and PhD in biomedical engineering at Cornell. After work, you will probably find him at the library or on a bicycle.
