V. Craig Jordan is Professor of Breast Medical Oncology, Professor of Molecular and Cellular Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX. Previously, he was Scientific Director and Vice Chairman of Oncology at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center of Georgetown University. Jordan was the first to discover the breast cancer prevention properties of tamoxifen and the scientific principles for adjuvant therapy with antihormones. More recently his work has branched out into the prevention of multiple diseases in women with the discovery of the drug group, selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERMs). Currently, he plans to develop a new Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for post-menopausal women that prevents breast cancer and does not increase the risk of breast cancer. In 2019 he was appointed Companion of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George by Queen Elizabeth II for services to women's health.
