It is my pleasure to introduce our newest addition to the full-time faculty in the Department of Health Sciences, Dr. Ricardo Parker. Ricardo is the new Program Lead for the BS in Allied Health Program.
Dr. Parker earned his PhD in Microbiology from Oregon State University, and trained as a post-doctoral Research Fellow at the National Cancer Institute. Since 1994, Dr. Parker has been a clinical cancer scientist with his major research focus being the molecular biology of cancer, mechanisms of chemotherapy drug resistance and the development of novel clinical strategies and tools to predict and stratify treatment regimens toward rational therapy of cancer patients. He is joining us from his most recent position at Loma Linda University, where he provided leadership and direction toward development and support of clinical research projects and clinical trials involving infants and children.
We are excited to have Ricardo join us. Please help welcome Ricardo to the Department and the School of Health and Human Services.
