Emory University cancer center director steps down
The head of Emory University's Winship Cancer Institute has stepped down, following a tumultuous year that included both recognition and criticism for the center. Brian Leyland-Jones, MD, had been director of the cancer center since early 2007. The university said the 60-year-old executive director is stepping down to pursue his research interests. He will be replaced by Walter Curran, MD, the center's chief medical officer.
