Joe W. Gray, MDDr. Joe Gray Laboratory explores mechanisms by which genomic, transcriptional and proteomic abnormalities occur in selected cancers, elucidates how these abnormalities contribute to cancer pathophysiologies and assesses the ways in which these abnormalities influence responses to gene targeted therapies.
Dr. Stuart Helfand, DVMDr. Stuart Helfand is dedicated to improving the health of animals with cancer while at the same time capitalizing on the unique opportunities presented by spontaneous tumors in pet animals as models for comparable cancers in humans. He is Professor of Oncology in the College of Veterinary Medicine, Oregon State University.
Dr. William F. Morgan, Ph.D., D.Sc.Dr. William Morgan has garnered a reputation as being a leading instructor in classical and molecular radiobiology of the past two decades. Dr. Morgan is currently the Director of Radiation Biology & Biophysics in the Biological Sciences Division of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratories. He serves as the PI for U.S. Department of Energy's Low Dose Radiation Scientific Focus Area Program at PNNL.
Dr. Wayne S. Zundel, PhD (Assistant Professor) (Bioradiation Lab)Wayne S. Zundel, PhD, has joined OHSU to serve as the inaugural director of the Division of Molecular Radiation and Cancer Biology within the Knight Cancer Institute’s Department of Radiation Medicine. Dr. Zundel has NIH funding in the form of a current R21 grant [CA140919] titled, “TARGETED CSN5 INHIBITION IN PANCREATIC CANCER”. He has previously received a R01 grant [CA102301] earlier this decade titled, “CSN5 MEDIATES HIF-ALPHA STABILITY AND TUMOR GROWTH”.
Dr. Zundel, currently an Assistant Professor, joins us from the University of Louisville/Brown Cancer Center, and will be joining the Knight Cancer Institute as an investigator. His lab which is focused on The Zundel lab has thus undertaken a global approach to map cellular pathways that control acute responses to hypoxia and reperfusion, is located in the BRB. Further layperson description of Dr. Zundel’s research focus. On behalf of the entire Department, I extend a sincere welcome to Wayne and his lovely wife, Linda Zundel, as they make this important transition to the great Pacific Northwest.
