A lung transplant in isolation

"Our family is so grateful for the opportunity that we have been given by the transplant team at MUSC. I cannot tell this story enough and give enough praise and thanks to the team of doctors, nurses and support staff who saved John's life. There are a lot of doctors in the world, but it takes a special team of people to have compassion and show the true love for what they do.” Lisa Gabriel, wife of John McDonald who received a double-lung transplant during COVID-19.

New associate directors at Hollings Cancer Center to advance cancer immunology

Congratulations to Shikhar Mehrotra, Ph.D., and Sophie Paczesny, M.D., Ph.D., named co-leaders of the Cancer Immunology program at Hollings Cancer Center at MUSC.

Mehrotra’s appointment began March 2. The associate professor in MUSC’s Department of Surgery replaces Chrystal Paulos, Ph.D., who has been program co-leader since 2017.

Paczesny’s appointment begins July 1. She’ll be replacing David Neskey, M.D., who has served as interim program co-leader since March 2019. Paczesny currently holds joint appointments in pediatrics and basic science—microbiology and immunology—at Indiana University School of Medicine.

“These two leaders bring a wealth of talent and expertise to lead Hollings into a new decade that promises to have exciting discoveries in how immune cells are compromised in tumor environments and how such findings can be translated to new therapies,” said Hollings Cancer Center interim director Denis Guttridge, Ph.D., about the appointments.
