Dr. Mulubrhan Mogos starts new position at Indiana University

| EPI-BIO, HPM, Monday Letter, Our People

Dr. Mulubrhan Mogos, a post-doctoral fellow in the USF College of Public Health, recently accepted an assistant scientist position at the Indiana University School of Nursing.


In mid-August, he relocated to Indianapolis and is getting acclimated to his new position. Thus far, he is active in education and research, teaching for the Department of Community and Health Systems, and is engaging in national and international research projects.

At USF, Dr. Mogos worked under the mentorship of Hamisu Salihu, MD, PhD, a professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, and Dawood H. Sultan, PhD., an assistant professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management.

“We will miss Dr. Mogos’ diverse skillset and personal charisma immensely,” Drs. Salihu and Sultan shared.  “Thankfully, Indiana University is extremely supportive of Mulubrhan’s ongoing collaboration with USF.”

Drs. Salihu and Sultan expect to partner with Dr. Mogos on more research projects like the one he recently shared at the International Cancer Education Conference.  Held in Seattle, Washington, Mogos presented on a USF project titled, “Maternal breast cancer diagnosis during pregnancy and adverse maternal health outcomes.”  In this project, Dr. Mogos and his co-authors observed that a breast cancer diagnosis during pregnancy was associated with more than a 30-fold increased risk of maternal in-hospital mortality, a 5.5-fold increased likelihood of acute renal failure, and a 3-fold increased chance of preterm labor and a prolonged hospital stay. Their findings could be used to provide evidence-based counseling to women with breast cancer who are pregnant or want to be pregnant.

“Our sincere congratulations to Dr. Mogos on his productive post-doctoral fellowship at USF and his exciting, new opportunity in Indianapolis,” Drs. Salihu and Sultan shared.
