Greg Aune, MD, Ph.D
Pediatric Hematologist-Oncologist @University of Texas Health San Antonio
Dr. Aune was born in Eastern Washington State and grew up on a wheat farm. At age 16 he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and was successfully cured of his disease after undergoing one year of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. His cancer experience led Dr. Aune down a path to becoming a pediatric oncologist. In 2005, he graduated from the University of Texas-Houston with an MD and PhD in the field of tumor biology and experimental therapeutics. Dr. Aune completed his residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD in 2008. During the beginning months of his hematology-oncology fellowship, Dr. Aune underwent open heart surgery to replace his aortic valve and bypass three blocked coronary arteries – the direct result of chemotherapy and radiation he had received 20 years prior. Similar to his teenage battle with cancer, this personal struggle guided his academic path towards developing a laboratory program investigating the basic science of pediatric cancer survivorship.
