rapy Center at M. D. Anderson - the largest and most sophisticated of its kind - that treats cancer by delivering radiation doses to a targeted tumor with remarkable precision.
  • Guillermina Lozano, Ph.D., Professor and Chair of Genetics, the oldest of six children born to immigrant parents from Mexico, was expected to marry and have children when she grew up. Defying this path, Lozano's cancer research genetics lab is developing ways to replace or correct the abnormal p53 gene, thereby realizing the potential to use gene therapy for some types of cancer.
  • Inspired by her grandmother's teachings of perseverance, discipline, drive and charity, Vickie Shannon, M.D., Professor of Pulmonary Medicine, entered medicine to continue her grandmother's legacy. Facing latent racism - even choosing to study at the same hospital that would not provide her mother healthcare in the 1960s because she was black - she has risen to become one of the first two African American women to be appointed full professor in 2007.
