Jaydira Del Rivero, MD, a Physician Scientist in the Developmental Therapeutics Branch of the National Cancer Institute, Center for Cancer Research, will be the featured guest for Facebook Live Luncheon with the Experts on Thursday, June 24 from 12 noon to 1 pm, Eastern Time. Dr. Del Rivero’s research is focused on developing novel treatment approaches and targeted therapies for endocrine malignancies including advanced gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, adrenocortical cancer and pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma.
Dr. Del Rivero’s clinic is part of NCI’s Rare Tumor Initiative. For the natural history studies, Dr. Del Rivero’s group collects data about the patients including demographics, clinical characteristics, familial genetics with adequate genetic counseling, patterns of disease progression, response or lack of response to therapeutic interventions, disease recurrence, and overall survival. The goal is to develop effective therapies for these cancers. Dr. Del Rivero is the Principal Investigator for the Natural History Study of Children and Adults With Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NEN)s.
