University of TexasKen H. Young, MD PhD is an Associate Professor in the Department of Hematopathology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. He was Medical Director of Hematology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and University East & West Clinic Laboratories, overseeing the laboratories at the University of Wisconin Hospital and Clinics Core Laboratory. He received his PhD from University of Lund School of Medicine and completed his MD training from Oregon Health Science University. He is board certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and Hematopathology.
His interests are to characterize molecular defects in patients with leukemia and lymphoma by using gene expression profiling, immunophenotypic method, methylation-microRNA-CGH arrays and current NGS molecular technologies with particular interest in tumor suppressor genes, oncogenes, p53 and NF-kB pathways. He has worked extensively on molecular diagnostics for human cancer and has obtained several novel discoveries valuable to predict treatment response, clinical outcome and survival in cancer patients.
