Chief
Electron Kebebew, M.D., F.A.C.S.

The Endocrine Oncology Branch (EOB) is comprised of researchers who have specialized training and an interest in endocrine malignancies. The Branch incorporates the major functions of clinical research, clinical care, and clinical training in pursuit of treating patients with endocrine cancers. The EOB routinely handles referrals from medical centers across the United States and overseas, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Institute of Digestive, Diabetes and Kidney Disease (NIDDK), and the National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD). All patients are enrolled on clinical protocols, and all care is provided at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

The goals of the Endocrine Oncology Branch are to:

  • Establish new and improved methods, strategies, technologies, and algorithms for the diagnosis of endocrine neoplasms
  • Identify the molecular basis for endocrine cancers
  • Discover new molecular and genetic markers for developing better diagnosis and novel targets for treatment of metastatic and advance endocrine cancers or biomarkers which could predict prognosis/response to therapy
  • Facilitate the implementation of newly available diagnostic techniques and treatment options, including the initiation of new clinical trials
  • Facilitate new and improved intramural, national and international collaborations and interdisciplinary studies and team approaches
  • Facilitate the establishment of national and international databases/networks, the organization of national and international patients and health care professional conferences to improve awareness and understanding of endocrine cancers
  • Educate young scientist and clinical investigators, and train physician-scientists.
