“I am thrilled to be taking up this new post and very much look forward to the opportunities it presents.” Morgan said. “With support from UAMS, I will build on the excellent work done to date as well as its reputation as world leader in myeloma treatment to develop innovative approaches for all myeloma patients and to characterize and cure high-risk myeloma.
“Myeloma is different for each individual patient, as different as one fingerprint is from another. It’s critical to develop technologies that can read this fingerprint, and to determine what is driving the disease in each individual patient, so we can kill or normalize the behavior of the myeloma cells. There isn’t a single treatment for myeloma but rather, there are many different, personalized treatment strategies, one of which is appropriate for a particular individual patient.”
Morgan said going forward, “We envision establishing a series of clinical trials investigating new treatments based on each patient’s unique myeloma fingerprint.”
“Gareth Morgan is an internationally recognized and respected scientist and clinician who works in the field of the molecular genetics and treatment of blood cell cancers — in particular, myeloma,” said UAMS Chancellor Dan Rahn, M.D. “The work he will do carries substantial promise of not only supplementing the research directions already being pursued within the institute, but in developing treatments with minimal toxicity.”
