After training in internal medicine, pediatrics, and epidemiology at the University of Tennessee and completing a hematology/oncology fellowship at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Scott worked for 14 years as a faculty member treating children with leukemia and lymphoma and conducting research in oncology supportive care, international oncology, and healthcare informatics. Scott has authored or co-authored 190 scientific papers and 15 book chapters and conducts translational and clinical research with local and international collaborators. After leaving St. Jude in 2014, he founded Resonance, an informatics, consulting, and global health company with a mission to improve care and outcomes in low- and middle-income countries. Its software has been deployed in several countries and serves as a hospital database, business intelligence tool, and clinical trials management system. Scott is a professor and the Associate Dean for Research of the College of Nursing at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center with a mission to implement advanced practice nursing in low- and middle-income countries to improve oncology care and palliative care.
Scott’s work in pediatric cancer in resource-limited countries made him a natural fit for World Child Cancer, where he serves as Chairman of the Board and shares the vision that no child should suffer.
