UPDATE: London doctor to lead UAMS cancer center

Posted: Updated:
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A London doctor has been tapped to serve as the new director for a cancer center at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock.

UAMS officials announced Tuesday that Dr. Gareth Morgan would succeed Dr. Bart Barlogie as the leader for UAMS' Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy.

Barlogie was the founder and director for the center that was established nearly 25 years ago to research and offer clinical care of multiple myeloma - a rare form of bone marrow cancer. More than 11,000 patients nationwide and from around the world have sought treatment at the myeloma institute.
