Meet Nancy DeMore, M.D. a Breast Cancer Surgeon at MUSC Health
 
03:10
Patients newly diagnosed with breast cancer face multiple challenges, both in the short-term with decision making regarding surgical options for the treatment of their cancer, and in the long-term facing the reality that they may develop metastatic disease which is presently incurable. As a breast surgical oncologist and transitional scientist, Dr. DeMore has taken two approaches to attempt to improve the quality of care for patients with breast cancer. As a surgeon, she has played an integral role in studying minimally invasive techniques that have changed the standard of care for the indicators for sentinel lymph node biopsy, as well as expanding indications for breast conservation with neoadjuvant chemotherapy, and as a co-investigator on an institutional trial of intraoperative radiation therapy for breast cancer. In an attempt to improve patient care she has been a co-investigator on 11 active clinical trials and 24 completed clinical trials, which has led to 16 publications relating to clinical advances in the care of breast cancer patients. Although she is keenly aware of the importance of advancing less invasive procedures for our patients that will ultimately improve their quality of life, she is also aware that the most devastating consequence of this disease is not how it behaves locally, but rather the pain and suffering to patients and their families when metastatic disease develops. Her goal as a physician-scientist is to develop novel therapies for the treatment and potential cure for patients with metastatic breast cancer, and she gains her inspiration from her work daily from her interaction with her patients. Her approach to developing novel therapies for breast cancer is in the field tumor angiogenesis, a field that she has been involved in for over 25 years. In 1991 she spent 3 years of dedicated research time in Dr. Judah Folkman’s laboratory at Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. The time she spent in Dr. Folkman’s laboratory was her inspiration for pursuing bench-to bedside research in tumor angiogenesis and for developing a career in breast cancer research. After completing surgical oncology fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Dr. DeMore came to UNC in 2001 and started her lab. The focus of her lab has been on discovering novel factors that stimulate blood vessel growth to tumors, and to develop new drugs that block these factors and therefore inhibit tumor growth. From a clinical perspective her goal is to continue to be actively engaged in patient care as a breast surgeon and continue to develop and accrue patients onto clinical trials. Dr. DeMore is interested in ensuring high quality clinically relevant grants are funded through the NIH and has been appointed to a 6 year term on the NIH Oncology 2, Translational Clinical IRG, Cancer Immunopathology and Immunotherapy Study Section. Her hope is that over the next twenty years she will have helped contribute to excellent patient care, advancement of less invasive survival techniques, and development of novel therapies that will improve survival for patients with metastatic disease. ➨ Visit Dr. DeMore's profile page http://www.muschealth.org/providerdirectory/DeMore-Nancy ➨ Follow MUSC Health on Twitter https://twitter.com/muschealth ➨ Like MUSC Health on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/MUSChealth ➨ Subscribe to the MUSC Health Blog http://www.muschealth.com/blog/ ➨ Request an appointment by calling MUSC Health at 843-792-1414.
