Research Lab Results for thyroid cancer
David Cooper LabPrincipal Investigator:
David Cooper, M.D.
Research in the David S. Cooper Lab focuses primarily on hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer. To...pics of recent published studies include the NTCTCS staging systems for differentiated thyroid cancer, radioiodine remnant ablation in low-risk differentiated thyroid cancer, and the link between race/ethnicity and the prevalence of thyrotoxicosis in young Americans. view moreResearch Areas: neoplasms, hyperthyroidism, cancer, thyroidectomy, thyroid, Graves’ disease, hypothyroidism
Douglas Ball LabPrincipal Investigator:
Douglas Ball, M.D.
The Douglas Ball Lab conducts clinical trials and pre-clinical laboratory studies of thyroid ca...ncer. Our clinical trials, performed in collaboration with research staff in the upper aero-digestive group in the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, have included protocols for advanced radioiodine-refractory differentiated thyroid cancer and medullary thyroid cancer. Our pre-clinical research, conducted with Dr. Nelkin, Dr. Agrawal and other Kimmel Cancer Center researchers, includes pathogenesis and mechanisms of treatment resistance in medullary thyroid cancer, and pathogenesis and immune-directed therapy of anaplastic thyroid cancer. view moreResearch Areas: thyroid cancer, medullary thyroid cancer, cancer, anaplastic thyroid cancer
Jon Russell LabPrincipal Investigator:
Jonathon Russell, M.D.
Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery
The Jon Russell lab focuses on thyroid and parathyroid pathology as well as improving patient s...afety and education using healthcare technology. Additional focuses include utilizing new technology to advance on the techniques of minimally invasive neck surgery. Current and previous efforts include the development of mobile and web-based applications to educate physicians and patients, utilizing ultrasound for vocal cord imaging, understanding the nuances of advanced thyroid cancer, and exploring the role of scarless thyroid surgery in a North American population. view moreResearch Areas: patient satisfaction, thyroid cancer, perioperative information delivery, health outcomes, otolaryngology, postoperative care, endocrinology
Kathryn Carson LabPrincipal Investigator:
Kathryn Carson, Sc.M.
The Kathryn Carson Lab investigates ways to improve medical research, particularly in the areas... of brain and thyroid cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, atherosclerosis, hypertension, HIV and lupus. Our team seeks to help researchers optimize their studies through better study design, protocol and grant writing, data cleaning and analysis, and publication writing. We work with investigators from a wide range of departments through the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research. view moreResearch Areas: epidemiology, lupus, research methods, data analysis, cancer, hypertension, clinical trials, HIV, biostatistics, Alzheimer's disease
Paul Ladenson LabPrincipal Investigator:
Paul Ladenson, M.D.
The Paul Ladenson Lab studies the application of thyroid hormone analogues for treating cardiov...ascular disease; novel approaches to thyroid cancer diagnosis and management; and the health economic analyses related to thyroid patient care. view moreResearch Areas: thyroid cancer, cardiovascular diseases, endocrinology
