Ewan Cobran, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Clinical and Administrative Pharmacy in the University of Georgia's College of Pharmacy. His primary research focuses on oncology, medically underserved populations and cancer health disparities. His research divides race into subcomponents (i.e., ethnicity, nativity, community, familial health experiences and religion) to broaden the understanding of how these factors influence drug use, patterns of care, and perceptions and barriers to detection and treatment of cancer in order to enhance existing theoretical cancer detection and treatment frameworks.

Dr. Cobran’s scholarship effort focuses on community-based participatory research, secondary data analysis (i.e., Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) cancer registry, Medicare Claims Database), and implementation of evidenced-based behavioral interventions.
