Schacter Named Clinical Trials Director at Yale

NEW HAVEN, Conn--Lee Philip Schacter, PhD, MD, has been named associate director for clinical trials for the Yale Cancer Center. In that role, he will oversee the clinical research projects on experimental cancer treatment taking place at the Center. Dr. Schacter comes to Yale from Bristol-Myers Squibb, where he was a director of the clinical cancer research program.

His top priority in his new position will be to further development of the Center's new clinical research program. "We have most of the people in place," he said, referring to the Center's corps of research scientists and physicians. "And we have promising experimental treatment programs underway. That combination makes this a place people look to for progressive cancer therapy."
