Members of the Breast Oncology Program Administrative Leadership Team

At Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center's Breast Oncology Program, our multi-disciplinary team works closely with patients, providing the resources and close cooperation of many specialists with deep expertise in diagnosing and treating breast cancer. Our physician-scientists are also researching and developing new and effective treatments for breast cancer, including clinical trials.

Having representatives from medical oncology, surgical oncology, and radiation oncology working together to coordinate your care ensures that all feasible approaches to treatment will be considered and that you will receive the combination of treatments that is best for you.
