Dr. Siegfried Janz Appointed to the Pathology Endowed Professorship in Cancer Research

May 17, 2018

Dr. Siegfried Janz

Dr. Siegfried “Siggy” Janz has been appointed Endowed Professor in Cancer Research by the University of Iowa Provost’s office effective April 1st, 2018. The Professorship is in recognition of his long-standing research accomplishments in the area of malignant B-cell and plasma-cell tumors. His fascination with mature B-lineage neoplasms began with in-depth training and rigorous bench work in Germany, where he performed diploma and doctoral thesis work on monoclonal gammopathies as part of his M.D. studies and medical residency training. During his subsequent 18-year tenure in the NCI Intramural Program – first as postdoc and then as principal investigator – Siggy had excellent opportunities to deepen his understanding of the biological pathways and genetic networks that underlie neoplastic development in the mature B-lineage.  After relocating his laboratory to the Department of Pathology at the University of Iowa in 2007, Dr. Janz kept his passion alive with translational studies on the design and testing of new approaches to myeloma treatment and prevention.
