Roswell Park Surgeon Earns U.S. Army Grant to Study Lung Cancer

Buffalo, NY -- Saikrishna Yendamuri, MD, Assistant Professor in the Departments of Surgical Oncology and Thoracic Oncology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute has been awarded a $555,103 grant from the U.S. Army to develop a way to help predict which lung-cancer patients are more likely to have their cancer recur after surgery.

Up to 35-percent of lung cancer patients who have a tumor removed see cancer return after surgery. If successful in his research, Dr. Yendamuri hopes to improve the process in predicting whether a tumor will return or not.
