Combinatorial Locksmith

"He will help build a cohesive and accomplished group of faculty in hematology/oncology," Meyers said.

Lam's commitment to hematology and oncology isn't new. Cancer caught his attention while he was just a novice graduate student at the McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research at the University of Wisconsin. So fierce was his interest in cancer research that he quickly moved through the Ph.D. and post-doctoral programs at Wisconsin and on into medical school at Stanford.

Lam's passion was further fueled when his father contracted lymphoma and eventually suc- cumbed to the disease the year after he graduated from Stanford.

"I really saw the need for more and different ways to treat cancer," said Lam, who completed his residency and hematology/oncology fellowship at the University of Arizona, where he then joined the faculty and secured a joint appointment in microbiology and immunology. He also served as a research and clinical member of the Arizona Cancer Center.
