John Buatti, MD, professor and chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology, and Patricia Winokur, MD, executive dean and professor in the Department of Internal Medicine, have been named co-chairs of the search committee for a new Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center director.

George Weiner, MD, recently announced his plans to step down as director of Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Starting in early 2022, Buatti and Winokur will begin convening a series of meetings with key cancer center stakeholders to solicit input on how we can best position the the cancer center to help solve the most challenging medical questions and deliver the most personalized care for cancer patients.

Following these stakeholder sessions, the composition of the full search committee will be announced, and the search will officially launch later in 2022.
