Mahsa Javid MD PhD 

Mentor: Mahsa Javid, M.D. Ph.D.

Keywords: Clinical Research and Basic Science

Research Interests: The basic science focus is on identifying and characterizing the role of angiogenic factors in thyroid cancer and differentiating which factors are associated with a clinically aggressive phenotype. This will include investigating particular factors that have been shown to be important in other cancers and validating their role in promoting tumor growth in thyroid cancer. There are currently two basic science projects available for participation. The clinical research will focus on endocrine tumor etiology and surgical outcomes including the role of environmental factors affecting thyroid cancer incidence and aggressiveness and a regional study on the optimization of parathyroidectomy in uremic hyper parathyroid patients.
