NEW HEAD OF HEMATOLOGY/ONCOLOGY

11/24/2004


Ted Gabig, MD, has been named Chief of the Division of Hematology/Oncology, the newly consolidated division that will help build the collaborative clinical and research efforts of physicians within the previously named Divisions of Neoplastic Diseases and Hematology. He will also serve as Deputy Director of the Long Island Cancer Center (LICC) at Stony Brook University.

John S. Kovach, MD, Director of the LICC, says that Dr Gabig's medical and administrative expertise will serve the new division well as the LICC continues its expansion. Dr Gabig oversees a diverse division that now includes 14 full-time faculty members. “The consolidation will have an immediate impact on the cancer program, as it serves to grow the faculty, complement the research skills of cancer specialists, and foster collaboration with basic scientists to grow translational research programs,” says Dr Gabig. This approach will center on the prevention and early detection of cancer, with gastrointestinal cancers and lung cancer the immediate focus.

Dr Gabig came to Stony Brook from the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System where he was Vice President for Cancer Services. From 1992 to 2002 he was Director of Hematology and Oncology in the Department of Medicine at Indiana University. In addition to his clinical experience, Dr Gabig is involved with research on identifying new biomarkers for cancer.
