Abstract (Document Summary)

He spent five years at Moffitt, then left seven months ago to be dean of the University of Arizona College of Medicine. He and his wife, Karen, hadn't even bought a house when the Tampa cancer center tapped him to be boss. Now the 52-year-old father of three - two are in college and one is a high school senior who will stay in Arizona to graduate - is back.

A prominent cancer researcher, [William S. Dalton] helped prove drugs called chemosensitizers can reverse drug resistance in patients. He and Moffitt's Dr. Richard Jove also identified the "switch" that turns on multiple myeloma at the molecular level.

A: I consider this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Moffitt is the most rapidly growing cancer center in the world. It has an outstanding board of directors who are very clear about what they are supporting: They want to create an environment to prevent and cure cancer. I have no qualms about them . . . backing up what they say they want to do.
