About Dale Henry


I have more than 25 years of combined clinical, research, and administrative management experience in cancer research and healthcare initiatives. I started my career in healthcare as a clinical laboratory technician, where I learned that I had a passion for cancer research.

After a continuation of my education, I became a research laboratory manager and served institutes such as the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and the University of Pittsburgh Hillman Cancer Center before coming to Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center to manage a lab directly related in translational cancer research. I received my executive MBA degree at the University at Buffalo in 2007 and moved into a science related administration role. I have been directly involved in 2 CCSG competitive grant submissions at Roswell Park, where I served in an administrative capacity.

From 2009 to 2013, I served as the Shared Resource Administrator at Roswell Park and, in 2013, I was promoted to Associate Director of Administration (ADA) for the CCSG and Chief Scientific Operation Officer (CSOO). In my role as ADA and CSOO, I work closely with the Deputy Director on many research advancement and improvement endeavors. Currently, my primary focus is on capital expenditures, new faculty recruitment, research funding management, and leading the cancer centers’ research space committee. I am an active member of Roswell Park’s IT governance committees, including the executive oversight committee to ensure scientific IT needs are met.
