DuBois served as AACR president from 2008 to 2009 and was elected an AACR Fellow in the inaugural class in 2013. He is a former member of the SU2C Management Committee and is currently chair of the SU2C Catalyst Industry Steering Subcommittees and serves on the Scientific Advisory Board as a reviewer.

DuBois was also named editor in chief for Cancer Prevention Research, a journal published by the AACR, effective July 1, 2018.
