Dr. French played a pivotal role in the discovery of the NUT fusion oncogene. As a pathologist, Dr. French does not see patients; however, he is a leader in the field and is involved in much of the research surrounding NUT carcinoma. Dr. French is available for pathology consult to assist referring physicians with diagnosis.
