Maureen Dubreuil, MD, M.Sc.

Dr. Dubreuil is a rheumatologist in Boston, specializing in Spondyloarthritis. She works within the section of Clinical Epidemiology Unit at Boston University School of Medicine, where her research focuses on comorbidities and pharmacoepidemiology of spondyloarthritis. In 2013, she was awarded the Arthritis Foundation Clinical to Research Transition Award and 2016, she began work on a K23-funded project to study patient preferences, and the cost-effectiveness of treatment modalities for spondyloarthritis, to inform both clinical care and policy decisions. She is an Associate Member of the Spondyloarthritis Research and Treatment Network, and serves on the Education subcommittee, as well as the Early Career Investigator Subcommittee of the American College of Rheumatology.

I have mentored Master-level SPH students and fellows in projects related to epidemiology of rheumatologic diseases and pharmacoepidemiology. These projects have culminated in publications, a Master degree thesis, as well as poster and oral presentations at national meetings. I hope to continue mentoring trainees who have interests in epidemiology related to specific research projects, development of research themes, or development of grant applications.
