About the Interview Subject:
Dr. Norman Leeds (b. 9 June 1928, West New York, New Jersey) came to MD Anderson in 1991 to serve as Head of the Section of Neuroradiology in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology. He is one of the pioneering founders of the field of neuroradiology and conducted foundational work on brain anatomy, the use of imaging techniques to enhance tumor diagnosis, and the toxic effects of chemotherapy on brain tissue. Dr. Leeds retired in 2003 to emeritus status, but at the time of the interview was continuing to come in to MD Anderson to mentor students and otherwise stay connected to the institution’s research and clinical community.
