Ph.D., University of Michigan, Human Genetics, 1976.
M.D., American University of Beirut, 1972.
Dr. Hanash's interests and expertise focus on the development and application of integrated approaches to the molecular profiling of cancer, with particular emphasis on proteomics. Dr. Hanash's Ph.D. training is in Human Genetics and clinical training in Pediatric Oncology. He has been a program principal investigator (PI) for multi-investigator projects funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) while at the University of Michigan, including program projects and most recently, PI for an NCI-funded Director's Challenge program, which focuses on molecular profiling of lung, colon and ovarian cancer and PI of an NCI-funded Cancer Biomarker Development program, which focuses on the application of proteomics to the discovery of protein markers for the early diagnosis of lung and GI cancers. Dr. Hanash has organized and participated in several workshops sponsored by the NCI related to cancer diagnostics and molecular profiling. Dr. Hanash relocated from the University of Michigan to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in August 2004 to lead a newly developed program in Molecular Diagnostics.
