Kevin B. Jones, MD

After studying literature at Harvard, Medicine at Johns Hopkins, Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Iowa, and Musculoskeletal Oncology at the University of Toronto, Kevin brought his wife and four children to Salt Lake City, Utah. While a faculty surgeon, he spent five years in a mentored position in the laboratory of Mario Capecchi. Now holding the L.B. and Olive S. Young Presidential Endowed Chair for Cancer Research in the Department of Orthopaedics, Dr. Jones provides surgical care for the full range of neoplastic diseases that afflict the musculoskeletal system in children and adults. His laboratory in the Department of Oncological Science at the Huntsman Cancer Institute studies the epigenetic regulation of transcription, using mouse models of translocation-associated sarcomas, especially synovial sarcoma, alveolar soft part sarcoma, and clear cell sarcoma.

Benjamin C. Powers, MD

I earned my medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine, then completed internal medicine residency at Loyola University Medical Center back in Chicago. I returned to Kansas City again for my hematology/oncology fellowship at the University of Kansas Medical Center.

I am certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine with subcertifications in hematology and medical oncology. In my clinical practice, I have subspecialized further into medical management of bone and soft tissue tumors, while also being involved in ongoing education/coaching/mentoring of first and second year medical students. I have a lovely wife and three active sons, and enjoy outdoor sports, barbecuing, traveling and reading.
