Dr. Amr is an academic physician/scientist with a broad and diverse experience as a basic science and population researcher, educator and clinical care provider. Earlier and current experiences have provided her with a uniquely comprehensive perspective on environmental and occupational medicine and public health which, by their very nature, are interdisciplinary fields. She had made and continue to make invaluable contributions to the understanding of environmental and occupational factors that affect human health (cancer and other diseases), and how to translate this knowledge into prevention.

Dr. Amr is a member of the Population Science Program within the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center Program in Oncology. Population Science researchers collaborate with investigators throughout the University of Maryland System to identify determinants of cancer etiology and survivorship, characterize cancer-related health behaviors, and translate basic discoveries into behavioral cancer prevention and control interventions.
