Summary

  • Vikas P. Sukhatme MD ScD is the Victor J. Aresty Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and Chief Academic Officer and Harvard Faculty Dean for Academic Programs at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

    He holds a doctorate in physics from MIT and an MD from Harvard. His research contributions span numerous areas of medicine and are in both basic science and clinical arenas. His longstanding interest in cancer currently centers around tumor metabolism and tumor immunology and on “outside-of-the-box” approaches for treating advanced cancer. He has conducted studies on genes important in kidney cancer. He was part of the team that uncovered the cause of preeclampsia, a blood vessel disorder and a major cause of morbidity in pregnant women. His research has provided insights into how blood vessels leak in patients with severe infections and on how new vessels form to feed growing tumors. He has elucidated mechanisms by which statins can cause muscle damage. Finally, he is a co-founder of a not-for-profit organization, GlobalCures, whose goal is to conduct clinical trials on promising therapies for cancer not being pursued for lack of profitability.
