After graduating from Johns Hopkins, Dr. Kenneth Anderson trained in Internal Medicine and completed training at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Hematology, Medical Oncology and Tumor Immunology. Over the last three decades, he performed extensive laboratory and clinical research studies on myeloma and has developed laboratory and animal models of the tumor in its microenvironment, which have identified and validated new target therapies that have quickly moved into clinical trials culminating in FDA approval. His paradigm for identifying and validating targets in the tumor cell has transformed myeloma therapy and dramatically improved patient outcomes.
