      Collapse Overview
      Dr. Al-Delaimy is a multidisciplinary epidemiologist with a medical background and interest in the epidemiology of chronic diseases, tobacco, diet, and the environment. He practiced medicine in his native Iraq and then Jordan between 1991-1995 before finishing his PhD from Otago University in New Zealand in 2000. He was a Research Fellow and Research associate at Harvard School of Public Health between 2000-2004, a scientist with the International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2003, and a faculty member at UCSD since 2004 as an Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor. His global research activities are in non-communicable diseases, including mental health, climate change, tobacco, ethics and human rights, and refugee health. He is also involved in academic and research development in the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa.

      He has been PI and Director of the California Tobacco Surveys since 2005. The surveys are a multi-million dollar project involving surveying of residents of the state California about their behavior, attitude, and beliefs in relation to tobacco smoke to generate data that is used by policy makers, public health professionals, and the community organizations to further tobacco control. He is internationally recognized for pioneering tobacco exposure biomarkers of toenail nicotine as well hair nicotine and utilized them for policy, behavioral change and prediction of disease outcomes. Hookah use and trends is another tobacco related area of research he has developed and published.

      Global environmental health is another focus of Al-Delaimy where he worked in the US/Mexico border area on pesticide biomarkers, and soil and water contamination as Co-director of Community Engagement Core for the UCSD Superfund Project. He is also pursuing projects with collaborators at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography about the influence of indoor air pollution from cookstoves on health of women in India. Climate change, and especially heat waves, in relation to non-communicable diseases is an emerging area of collaboration with Scripps Institute of Oceanography.

      He is Director of the NIH Fogarty International Center Training Program in International Research Ethics based in Jordan which is focused on building research methods capacity in Jordan the Middle East Region, with a focus on research ethics, non-communicable diseases and epidemiology. The 5-year program is expected to train more than 100 researchers who will become Fellows in Research Ethics.

      Research on chronic diseases and health of refugees in San Diego and Jordan has been developed by Al-Delaimy and local and international collaborators. In San Diego an ongoing collaboration on the assessment of mental health among Iraqi refugees and Hispanic immigrants aims at understanding the prevalence and risk factors of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression among mothers and their children. This work is now being extended to the Middle East through the Middle East Consortium on Mental Health.
