George Sledge: a retrospective on a career in breast cancer treatment and research
Interview: George Sledge, Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center professor of medicine.
In honor of George Sledge’s work at IU "Sound Medicine" will revisit a 2011 interview with the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center professor of medicine. Sledge reflects on his career thus far, including the progression of cancer treatment since the 1980s. Sledge came to Indiana University in 1983. At that time he was the only oncologist with expertise in the area of breast cancer, and it was under his leadership that IU opened its first breast clinic. He departs soon to direct the hematology oncology program at Stanford University.
