Hello All,

I would like to bring some very exciting news to our IBC community.  It is my pleasure to announce there will be a new IBC Clinic at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philidelphia in approximately six months (if not sooner).

With this new clinic opening, it is also my honor to tell you that Dr. Massimo Cristofanilli will be heading up this new facility.

Yes, Dr. C is moving to the East Coast, but the Morgan Welch IBC clinic in Houston will be working closely and with the same protocols as those which have become standardized by Dr. C and his team over the last three years.

Also, In addition to his position in the department of medical oncology, Dr. Cristofanilli will be the co-director  of the Women’s Cancer Program,  He will also serve as associate director of clinical research for Fox Chase’s Cancer Center Support Grant from the National Cancer Institute.
