John R. Priest

Retired Oncologist, Formerly of Children's Health Care, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.

Dr. Priest is a retired medical oncologist who brought profound expertise in the study and treatment of the childhood lung tumours known as pleuropulmonary blastoma, the most common malignant manifestation of the DICER1 tumour syndrome, to our research efforts. He was instrumental in helping us establish our DICER1 research program through his ties to The International Pleuropulmonary Blastoma Registry based in Minneapolis and by providing critical insight that helped define the DICER1 pleiotropic tumour syndrome phenotype.
