Steven Rosen is leaving his job as director of Northwestern University Robert H. Lurie Cancer Center to become the center director, provost, and chief scientific officer at City of Hope National Medical Center.
The move is interesting in part because, after 25 years in the top job at Northwestern, Rosen is the second longest-serving director of a cancer center in the U.S. (Rosen’s friend Max Wicha, who became director of the University of Michigan Cancer Center 27 years ago, is the first.)
The change is all the more noteworthy because the role Rosen is taking at City of Hope will require him to be a part of a management team, where he would run the scientific and academic functions, but would report to that institution’s president and designated next CEO, Robert Stone.
