Dr Robert Haile is the associate director of population sciences at the Stanford Cancer Institue. The institute’s Population Sciences Program spans several academic departments including epidemiology, genomics, disparities research, and community-based participatory research, among others.

The Cancer Epidemiology Program and Cancer Prevention and Control Program in the Population Sciences area combine the expertise and resources of the Cancer Prevention Institute of California and Stanford University including the Schools of Medicine, Behavioral and Social Sciences, Computer Science and Engineering, Economics, and the Graduate School of Business. Additional institutions represented by members are the VA, Palo Alto Health Economics Research Center and Kaiser Permenante's Northern California Research Group.
