Date:4/1/2013

outstanding researchers and clinicians to establish the Alvord Center as the best in the world," said Paul G. Ramsey, M.D., CEO of UW Medicine and dean of the UW School of Medicine. "Under Dr. Holland's leadership, we will be able to fulfill the vision for brain cancer research and clinical care established by Buster Alvord when he and his family made their extraordinarily generous commitment to establish the Alvord Center. I am delighted to welcome Eric Holland to UW Medicine."

Holland said he is looking forward to the challenge of developing a world-class brain cancer and solid-tumor program in Seattle to build on the Hutchinson Center's pioneering, Nobel Prize-winning work in bone-marrow transplantation to treat leukemia and other blood cancers and to collaborate with the outstanding genome scientists at UW Medicine.

"I am thrilled at the prospect of working with the world's leading experts in genome sciences, computational biology and those involved in the development of novel platforms for delivering innovative therapies to cancer patients," Holland said. "The highly collaborative, multidisciplinary nature of cancer research at Fred Hutch and UW Medicine provides a solid foundation to build on."

Holland is currently the Emily Tow Jackson Chair in Oncology and the founding director of the Brain Tumor Center at Sloan-Kettering, where he has built one of the nation's most successful brain cancer research and clinical programs. He specializes in the research and treatment of glioma – the most common brain cancer in adults – and metastatic brain tumors. 

Throughout his career Holland has worked at the intersection of multiple disciplines to address the molecular basis of brain tumors and develop new approaches to their treatment. His r
