    Collapse overview
    Dr. Dennis K. Watson is the Hollings Cancer Center’s Associate Director of Education & Training. He ensures the education and training structure that serves pre- and post-doctoral students as well as junior faculty within the HCC is well-structured, coordinated across multiple initiatives, effective, and promotes transdisciplinary collaborations. He is a Professor of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine and also is the leader of the Cancer Biology Division of the Molecular & Cellular Biology & Pathobiology Program in MUSC’s College of Graduate Studies. Dr. Watson has trained and mentored many young scientists pursuing cancer research who now occupy key positions in academic and industrial laboratories throughout the world.

    Dr. Watson’s research interests are in the areas of cellular and molecular biology, gene discovery, cellular differentiation and molecular oncology. His laboratory has identified and functionally characterized genes with altered expression during cancer progression. Recent studies in his laboratory have explored the role of regulatory circuitry in tumor cell interaction with the microenvironment.
