My name is doctor David Goldenberg, I’m a surgeon,
scientist and I study head and neck and thyroid cancer genomics. I believe that the work we’re
doing is important because the future of cancer care is in understanding the underlying mechanisms
that make cancer unique in each individual patient. Our research team is currently looking
at a novel gene mutation never described before in thyroid cancer. We believe that this may
be the key in explaining why thyroid cancer occurs in some individuals and not in others.
I am passionate about studying thyroid cancer because the incidence of this cancer has tripled
in the last three decades and we don’t really know why. My name is doctor David Goldenberg
and I’m inspired to study head and neck and thyroid cancer genomics.
