PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon Health & Science University has found a scientist to lead its $1 billion cancer research center.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/awGbt7 ) that nanoengineer Sadik Esener will lead the early detection cancer research center. He will earn $350,000 a year as part of an endowment from the family of Richard Wendt, the late co-founder of Jeld-Wen.

Esener has spent the past 30 years at the University of California, San Diego, where he is a professor of nanoengineering and electrical and computer engineering. At OHSU he will focus on detecting cancers early, when they’re most treatable, and on differentiating between lethal and nonlethal tumors.
