Jerry is a Member of the Clinical Research Division, Director of the Molecular Oncology CLIA Lab and the Kurt Enslein Endowed Chair at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. He is a Professor of Medicine in the Division of Medical Oncology at the University of Washington. Dr. Radich’s research laboratory focuses on the molecular biology of response, resistance, and progression in acute and chronic myeloid leukemia. His clinical Molecular Oncology Lab provides the molecular diagnostic support for many institutional, US Intergroup, international, and pharmaceutical trials. Some of his major scientific contributions over the past three decades include being among the first to document the prevalence and significance of mutations in the Ras/MAPK signaling pathway in acute myeloid leukemia and recognition of the importance of measurable residual disease in ALL, AML and CML. He was awarded the International CML Foundation Award in 2017 and the Washington Global Health Alliance Partnership Award in 2019 for his lab’s work on diagnosing and monitoring chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in the developing world. A mere subset of his many past and present leadership roles include: Chair of the Leukemia Translational Medicine Committee of the Southwest Oncology Group, Inaugural Chair of the National Cancer Institute and National Institute of Health Leukemia Steering Committee, past member of the Board of Scientific Counselors of the NIH Genome Research Institute, past-chair of the CML Committee of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and current member of the European Leukemia Network CML committee. He serves on the Scientific Board of the International CML Foundation and the Max Foundation and leads the Laboratory Committee of the NCI AML Precision Medicine Initiative and the Foundation of the NIH’s program in measurable residual disease in AML. Dr. Radich holds a BS with Honors in Biology from UC San Diego, an MS in Epidemiology from Harvard University School of Public Health, and an MD from UC Davis School of Medicine.
