I'm extremely proud to announce that Dr. Ute Moll has been recognized by SUNY's award of the title "Distinguished Professor". This reflects the overall scientific impact of her pioneering research into oncogenic mechanisms of mutant p53 in cancer and her dedication to the highest principles of her profession as a physician/scientist and educator. 


Dr. Moll will be officially inducted into the SUNY Distinguished Academy on June 10th, 2019 and will receive her medallion at that time from Chancellor Johnson.
