Recruitment of Established Investigators
Emory University School of Medicine
August 21, 2019
How well patients survive cancer is affected by many factors, such as race, access to care, socioeconomic factors, and insurance status. Even curable cancers like some types of lymphoma kill patients who don’t access care soon enough, typically Black and Hispanic patients.
Now a cancer physician-scientist is applying his skills in medicine and data science to study disparities in lymphoma in Texas. Dr. Christopher Flowers, M.D., was recruited in 2019 to the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Research Center from Emory University School of Medicine, where he was professor of hematology & medical oncology. He was recruited with the help of an Established Investigator Award from CPRIT.
