David Rollo, M.D.

Biography
David Rollo joined the Vanderbilt Radiology faculty in 1977, and was the Director of the Nuclear Medicine Division during and after Randy’s sabbatical year in London (University College, and the Royal Free Hospital). During this period, David was Director of the clinical and research program, with Randy was Co-Director. Juan Touya, Mark Born, and Martin Kronenberg provided clinical support and research support was provided by senior scientists (Ron Price, Jim Patton, Jon Erickson, Jerry Jones, and David Pickens, all with PhDs in Physics or Engineering), aided by Ed Lagan’s electronic talents. Rollo served as Division Director until he left in 1982 for a career in the Health Care Industry, starting at Humana.
