MORGANTOWN, WV— Scot C. Remick, M.D., the new director of the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, will be introduced to the Morgantown community on the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center Campus at West Virginia University on June 21, when he delivers the annual Jean and Laurence DeLynn Lecture.

Dr. Remick’s lecture is two-fold and entitled, “Early Phase Drug Development in Cancer,” and “Plans to Grow the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center.” The speech to friends, students, faculty and staff is at 2 p.m. in the Health Sciences Center auditorium.  A reception will follow in the Commons Area of the HSC Learning Center.

A renowned cancer physician and researcher, Remick is currently the associate director for clinical research at the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center in Cleveland and holds the Dr. Lester E. Coleman Chair in Cancer Research and Therapeutics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.  As director of WVU’s Cancer Center he will hold the Jean and Laurence DeLynn Chair of Oncology.

 

Remick brings vast experience in national and international clinical trials research to the cancer center, and has published widely in these areas.  He is a graduate of New York Medical College with advanced training at Johns Hopkins and the University of Wisconsin Clinical Cancer Center.

He will detail his strategy for building the cancer center into a facility worthy of achieving National Cancer Institute designation as a clinical/comprehensive cancer center.

Remick joins a long list of prominent and prestigious speakers to visit the WVU campus for more than two decades thanks to the generosity of the DeLynn family.  Others include ABC News correspondent Sam Donaldson, former White House Chief of Staff Hamilton Jordan and Michael Phelps, the inventor of PET scanning technology.
