VARI | 2009 George F. Vande Woude, Ph.D. Laboratory of Molecular Oncology Dr. Vande Woude received his M.S. (1962) and Ph.D. (1964) from Rutgers University. From 1964– 1972, he served first as a postdoctoral research associate, then as a research virologist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture at Plum Island Animal Disease Center. In 1972, he joined the National Cancer Institute as Head of the Human Tumor Studies and Virus Tumor Biochemistry sections and, in 1980, was appointed Chief of the Laboratory of Molecular Oncology. In 1983, he became Director of the Advanced Bioscience Laboratories–Basic Research Program at the National Cancer Institute’s Frederick Cancer Research and Development Center, a position he held until 1998. From 1995, Dr. Vande Woude first served as Special Advisor to the Director, and then as Director for the Division of Basic Sciences at the National Cancer Institute. In 1999, he was recruited to become the founding Director of the Van Andel Research Institute. In 2009, Vande Woude stepped down as Director and assumed the new title of Distinguished Scientific Fellow, while retaining his role of head of the Laboratory of Molecular Oncology.
