Thursday, June 02, 2011

GALVESTON — Dr. Vicente A. Resto is the new chairman of otolaryngology at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, leading the department’s clinical, research and educational programs.

“Dr. Resto has a proven track record of accomplishment,” said Dr. Garland D. Anderson, provost and dean of the School of Medicine. “Under his stewardship the department of otolaryngology has doubled its faculty and diversified clinical operations to multiple sites offering all aspects of advanced care.”

Resto joined the faculty in 2006 and has served as interim chairman since October, 2008. He is the Harry Carothers Weiss chairman in otolaryngology and co-director of the Center for Cancers of the Head and Neck and area medical director. He holds joint appointments in the departments of surgery and biochemistry and molecular biology.

Resto also directs a research laboratory focused on the study of the molecular mechanisms important for lymphatic metastasis and tumor tolerance. In 2007, he received a Physician Scientist Early Career Award from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute to support his research on how tumors might seek out certain parts of the body. He received both his doctoral degree in human genetics and his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University in 2000.
