Dean Mark Richardson recently appointed Charles Keller, MD, FAAP, to the Sada and Rebecca Tarshis Professorship in Pediatric Hematology Oncology. Dr. Keller joined OHSU in August 2010 as an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics.
Dr. Keller’s research focuses on molecularly targeted therapies for childhood cancers. Read more about these efforts in a recent SoM News article.
“I hope that through the work of our laboratory and the Pediatric Cancer Biology Program that we will meet the example of bringing forth tangible change and contributing to the greater good, particularly with respect to outcomes for metastatic childhood cancers,” said Dr. Keller. “This is the time and this is the place.”
