Hide Profile

Jan Van Eys, M.D., Ph.D. moved from the Netherlands to the United States to study biochemistry at Vanderbilt University where he received his Ph.D. in 1955. In 1957, he joined the faculty at Vanderbilt acting as Assistant Professor of Biochemistry. An interest in clinical activities led to his leaving Vanderbilt to study medicine at the University of Washington. He completed his medical education at the University of Washington in 1966 and then returned to Vanderbilt where he accepted an appointment to both the pediatrics faculty and the biochemistry faculty. From 1969 to 1973, he was Chief of the Pediatric Hematology Clinic at Vanderbilt where he focused on an active program of both research and clinical practice. In 1973, Van Eys left Vanderbilt to become a leading pediatric hematologist-oncologist and Chair of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. He later was appointed Chair of Pediatrics at the University of Texas Medical School in Houston. During that time, he published considerably in the field of medical ethics, as well as in oncology and biochemistry. After retiring from the University of Texas in 1994, Van Eys returned to Vanderbilt as a clinical professor of Pediatrics and senior scholar at the Ethics Center.
