The presentation is set to take place at noon on May 6 in Lecture Hall 156 of Dixie State’s Russell C. Taylor Health Science Center, located on the Dixie Regional Medical Center campus at 1526 E. Medical Center Drive. The meeting is free and open to the public.

During his presentation, Nadauld will delve into current and developing therapies for cancer treatment at Intermountain Precision Genomics, which provides a personal approach to testing, diagnosing and treating cancer. Additionally, he will discuss the partnership between Intermountain Healthcare and the university, which includes sending at least two Dixie State students to the Stanford University Undergraduate Summer Research Program each summer.

As Intermountain Healthcare’s chief of Precision Health, Nadauld oversees the clinical implementation of genomic cancer medicine across Intermountain Healthcare’s 23 hospitals and 180 physician clinics.

Nadauld earned a bachelor’s degree in zoology from Brigham Young University and went on to receive his medical and doctoral degrees as well as clinical training at the University of Utah. After he completed his clinical training in medical oncology at Stanford, he continued his research and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in solid tumor genomics. He then remained on faculty at the Stanford School of Medicine, focusing on cancer genomics and personalized cancer medicine. Additionally, Nadauld spearheaded the Oncology Precision Network, where healthcare partners work to advance data sharing in precision medicine, including genomic information and outcomes. 

The President’s Colleagues of DSU meeting series will resume on Oct. 7 for the 2019-20 academic year. The series, established more than 20 years ago by former DSU President Douglas Alder, is a group of retired professors and other professionals who live mostly in the Washington County area. Alder, who also started DSU’s Honors Program, organized the group as a way to increase academic activities on campus.
