Ming Tan, M.D., Ph.D., is an Associate Professor, an endowed research scholar, and the Director of Center for Cell Death and Metabolism Research at Mitchell Cancer Institute, University of South Alabama. Upon earning his Ph.D. degree in cancer biology from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in 2000, he continued his research on the mechanisms of oncogene induced cancer progression and therapeutic resistance as a postdoctoral fellow. He joined the Faculty at Mitchell Cancer Institute at the University of South Alabama in 2007, where he directed a research program on metabolism and cancer, mechanism of cancer cell therapeutic resistance, invasion and metastasis, and microRNA in cancer development.
