Making Strides to Find a Cure

Dr. Silver's Corner

We have come a long way in the fight against blood cancers including myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and multiple myeloma as well as other common cancers such as breast and lung cancer. But as those directly affected by these malignancies know, we still have a long way to go to improve cancer survivorship and the quality of life of patients.

Dr. Silver’s Corner provides resources on the latest developments in cancer research, treatment options, clinical trials and other topics related to MPN research programs and funding. As a leader in cancer research and the mission to find a cure, Dr. Silver has been an important catalyst in advancing clinical cancer research since the 1950s.

Dr. Silver is a professor of medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University and the Director Emeritus at Weill Cornell’s Richard T. Silver M.D. Myeloproliferative Neoplasm Center.  His research is widely published in prestigious, peer-reviewed medical journals and he is a frequent lecturer on MPNs.
