Leadership and Board

Cancer Center Leadership
CANCER CENTER EXTERNAL ADVISORY BOARD (CCEAB)
External advice regarding the scientific programs of the Cancer Center is provided by the CCEAB. CCEAB members are recognized leaders in areas of research relevant to the Center, have broad interest and knowledge in cancer research, and bring forth significant administrative and leadership expertise.
 
The CCEAB is chaired by Dr. Kenneth Tew, who is the Professor and Chairman of the Hollings Cancer Center, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC.  Additional members include Drs. William Dalton, Robert Diasio, Alec Kimmelman, David Scheinberg, Kevan Shokat and Ms. Lisa Sideras.  
 
CCEAB meets annually to review the Center, its programs, newly recruited faculty and proposed future goals, including the Five Year Scientific Plan. The CCEAB submits a written report to the Director, who shares the report with members of PPG and implements the CCEAB recommendations, as applicable. The CCEAB guidance led to the establishment of the current three programs, and helped to shape the strategic emphasis areas within each program. The Center Director also consults with CCEAB members regarding leadership appointments within the Center, and the CCEAB members have endorsed the appointments of the new Associate Directors and Program Leaders during the past funding period.
