Ramon Parsons, MD, PhD, professor and chair of oncological sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai was recently named the director of The Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai. One of Dr. Parsons’ most important discoveries is the identification of PTEN, a tumor suppressor gene that is often mutated in cancer, which provides critical therapeutic targets in breast, brain, prostate, and endometrial cancer. In his new role as director of The Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai, Dr. Parsons will retain his role as chair of the Department of Oncological Sciences and will continue his research program.
