About Me

The field of cancer research is one that has grown and expanded significantly during the past 2 decades, providing new diagnostic and treatment strategies for diseases and illnesses that previously did not have very many options. Dr. Samson Jacob’s research team contributed significantly to this effort. He has been regarded as a pioneer in this field for many years, leading a wide variety of research projects that have focused on different areas pertaining to liver cancer and some types of leukemia, particularly chronic lymphocytic leukemia. 

Growing up, he knew he wanted to be involved in the field of medicine, but he also knew that this would take a tremendous amount of time and effort. He worked hard and took key leadership roles at some of the top universities in the country. He knew that he wanted to have a very diverse career, so he decided to continue to pursue his goal of becoming a researcher and also take up a teaching career at the same time in medical school teaching.
