Dr. Mullen is a senior health promotion scientist with experience leading NIH and CDC elicitation studies and clinical trials on the adoption of smoke-free home policies, tobacco cessation during pregnancy preconception counseling to lower risk during pregnancy, provision of tools for finding, selecting, adapting, implementing, and evaluating evidence-based interventions; and promotion of informed decision making for contested cancer screening and treatment. A commitment to dissemination and implementation in clinics, jails, and other settings has strongly influenced her research, which has emphasized intervention personnel and participants who represent "real life" populations, especially those with low socio-economic status. 

She has led an Interdisciplinary Training for Cancer Prevention and Control program through four competitive renewals at the NCI and the Innovation in Cancer Prevention Research Training grant through its first competitive renewal at the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas. She was selected The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) President's Scholar, a University of Texas System Regents' Distinguished Teaching Professor and elected to The University of Texas System Shine Academy of Health Sciences Teaching. She has received the Society for Public Health Education Mentoring Award.
