Patrick Sung, D.Phil., associate dean for research at the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine, is world-renowned for discovering the mechanism of a fundamental step in HR repair. As associate dean for research, Dr. Sung influences decisions like which researchers to hire, how to leverage their skills, and how best to build out a synergistic research infrastructure. Dr. Sung believes that first understanding the function of complex gene repair pathways is essential to develop novel cancer therapeutics and biomarkers of response to known cancer drugs. “If I achieve that, I will consider myself as having a really successful career, and we are getting there, no doubt."
Monica Verduzco-Gutierrez, M.D., chair of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine at UT Health San Antonio, opened the first COVID-19 Rehabilitation Clinic in the area with services available at the UT Health clinics and at University Hospital, the main hospital partner of UT Health. Dr. Verduzco-Gutierrez grew up in South Texas, and never dreamed that she would one day return to San Antonio to become the third ever Hispanic female full professor and chair of a department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in the United States.
