My name is John L. Villano; I specialize in the treatment of brain cancers. I will advance UK HealthCare's Clinical Neuro-Oncology Research Program, serving as its director. UK HealthCare has a history of being a world-class neuro-oncology program, and I will help carry this tradition into the future.
Previously, I served as the director of medical neuro-oncology at the University of Illinois Medical Center. I earned a medical degree and doctor of philosophy at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School at Dallas and trained in neurology at the University of Michigan. I also completed a fellowship in hematology/oncology at the University of Chicago. I am a former American Society of Clinical Oncology track leader for CNS tumors. Currently, I am on the board of the Central Brain Tumor Registry US. I am also a member of the Neuro-Oncology Committee in the cooperative group ALLIANCE and a Society of Neuro-Oncology committee member.
