Dr. John Roderick 'Rod' Heller (born February 27, 1905, Fair Play, S.C., died May 4, 1989, Bethesda, Md., age 84), was the head in 1943–1948 of what was then called the "Venereal Disease" section of the United States Public Health Service (PHS). He then became the director of the National Cancer Institute, and then president/chief executive officer of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. He is best known for having been the assistant in charge of on-site medical operations in the Tuskegee syphilis study, a longitudinal clinical examination by PHS of untreated syphilis in U.S. African-American males.

A native of the U.S. South, Heller was born in South Carolina. He was directly descended, on both his father's and his mother's side, from soldiers who had fought for the Confederate States of America. He was awarded a bachelor of science degree from Clemson University in 1925, and graduated in 1929 from Emory University School of Medicine. In 1930, shortly after completing his internship, he began working in public health and was commissioned in 1934 in the United States Public Health Service. He specialized in the epidemiology of sexually transmitted diseases. As part of his specialist research, Heller assisted Dr. Raymond A. Vonderlehr, a clinician and epidemiologist who was one of the chief originators of what became the Tuskegee syphilis study. As the Tuskegee study's on-site director, Vonderlehr led a key transitional move in 1933: the clinicians identified groups of patients, persons they were already examining and who were known to be infected, as potential subjects in a prospective cohort study of the progressive effects of syphilis on human neuroanatomy.

The Tuskegee study used painful diagnostic tests, including spinal taps, which were deceitfully described as 'treatments.' State-of-the-art treatments for syphilis were not fully effective in the 1930s. Vonderlehr was Heller's mentor at the time, and selected Heller to be his assistant in charge of on-site medical operations at Tuskegee. Both Vonderlehr and Heller were seen as doing good work in the Venereal Disease Section of PHS, and Vonderlehr served as head of the Section until his retirement in 1943. Sexually transmitted diseases were seen as a major scourge of the time, and published data (including at least one study co-authored by Heller) of the neurological and other complications that were beginning to be experienced by some Tuskegee patients only increased the level of salience given to public-health work in this specialty. Heller believed that it was his duty to learn as much about long-term syphilis, and its complications, as he could. As he recalled in 1964:

Heller's overall work was aided, starting in 1944, with the dissemination of penicillin as a treatment for syphilis. Production of the new "wonder drug" was made a priority for U.S. servicemen, including servicemen diagnosed with syphilis; however, penicillin took longer to manufacture for civilians, including civilians treated by the U.S. Public Health Service. Although Heller continued to serve as head of the venereal disease section of PHS, the drug was not provided to patients in the Tuskegee study. Their neurological and other complications continued and worsened, but the study had been underemphasized and its patients forgotten by medical circles. Heller was much praised for his overall work on the epidemiology of sexually transmitted diseases; he rose to the rank of Assistant Surgeon General of the United States, and was named president of the American Venereal Disease Association in 1948–1949.
