Ashish Deshmukh, Ph.D., joined MUSC in August as the co-leader of the Hollings Cancer Control program. Deshmukh complements and strengthens the existing program with his focus on cancer epidemiology, decision science and human papillomavirus (HPV)-related cancers.

“I’m very excited and keen to work across disciplines within Cancer Control and beyond, as part of MUSC, to improve cancer prevention and control in South Carolina.”

The goal is to do medicine in a novel way, with a new perspective, with Hollings pushing the cutting edge of what's happening. What also is a driving force is educating the people who will then go out and deliver that care to patients locally, regionally and nationally.
