Leadership Spotlights

Image Along side Text

Pavan Reddy, M.D.

Director, Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center

“Baylor has the quality and depth of science and a culture of seeking fundamental discovery, and a diverse community that it serves clinically. It was an attractive opportunity to be part of this, grow it and grow with it, and to impact underrepresented patients with the insights. Specifically, I was attracted to Baylor because of its work on cellular engineering/immune effector therapy, in precision medicine, especially in genomics and in breast cancer, and its incredible work in trying to deliver equitable care to all Houstonians, throughout Texas and also globally.”

“The biggest thing for me in choosing Baylor was its reputation. To be number one in the state of Texas in terms of NIH dollars just speaks loudly to the quality of the research that’s being done. Baylor’s focus on research coupled with investments in infrastructure and facilities will allow us to continue to recruit high-quality students who are going to have a transformational experience that will then turn them into high-quality providers who will impact all segments of the community in years to come.”

Anthony Zoghbi, M.D.

Chief of the Menninger Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Psychiatric Genetics

Primary Research Focus – Translating genomic insights into improved clinical care, disease risk prediction and novel therapies for neuropsychiatric disorders

“Growing up in Houston and attending Baylor College of Medicine for medical school, I have always considered Baylor my academic home. I wanted to come back to Baylor (from Columbia) for its unique combination of academic rigor, collegiality and expertise in genetics and psychiatry. The diversity and scale of the Texas Medical Center also provides a unique opportunity to engage in large-scale, cutting-edge population genomics research.”
