A new pre-clinical study by Winship researchers and published in Science Advances suggests promising new strategies to improve the efficacy of immunotherapy in patients with triple negative breast cancer. In comparison to other types of breast cancer, triple negative breast cancer tends to grow and spread faster, and it has fewer treatment options and worse outcomes.
Committed to accelerating the testing of new cancer treatments through clinical research, Winship recognizes the following physicians at each Winship study site who have enrolled the most patients onto interventional cancer clinical trials during the last six months (pictured clockwise from top left): Ludimila Cavalcante, MD (Clifton); Dong Shin, MD (Midtown); Maria Diab, MD (Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital); Bree Eaton, MD (Emory Proton Therapy Center); and Joseph (Jay) Shelton, MD (Grady).
