Date:9/26/2013

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (PRWEB) September 26, 2013

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital officials have named Larry Kun, M.D., an internationally recognized radiation oncologist, as clinical director and executive vice president.

Kun will guide all aspects of clinical care and oversee clinical operations, clinical effectiveness practices and patient care quality programs for the 7,800 patients who are treated or receive post-treatment care at St. Jude each year.

“Under Dr. Kun’s leadership we will continue to enhance our patient care programs and accelerate momentum in developing and delivering innovative new treatments for children with cancer, sickle cell and other catastrophic diseases,” said Dr. William E. Evans, St. Jude director and CEO. “Along with outstanding clinical skills, Dr. Kun has proven his ability to organize and lead complex, multi-institutional collaborations, such as the national Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium.”

Kun brings more than 35 years of academic and patient care experience to his new role. An international leader in treatment of brain tumors and other childhood cancers, he joined St. Jude in 1984 to establish a department to treat cancer with radiation therapy and to initiate the multidisciplinary brain tumor program. Under his leadership, the department grew into the largest pediatric brain tumor research program in the country.
