Sareh Parangi, M.D. is a busy endocrine surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School. She is dedicated to personalized care of patients with thyroid cancer. She focuses her clinical efforts on endocrine surgery and applies her basic science knowledge and expertise to tumor progression in thyroid cancer. She also has expertise in molecular biology and has published numerous articles. She has been a council member for The American Association of Endocrine Surgeons. She was a recipient of one of ThyCa’s Thyroid Cancer Research Grants. She has won numerous awards for her research on understanding the role of the BRAF oncoprotein, why some patients with thyroid cancer do worse than others, and how to help them. Her work in thyroid cancer details certain key genetic changes seen more frequently in those who do poorly, to help elucidate the role of these genetic changes in the aggressive behavior of those cancers and on clarifying the molecular mechanism of thyroid cancer invasion and understanding the process of disease progression in patients with thyroid cancer.
