Eric J. Sherman, MD

I am a medical oncologist dedicated to improving the lives of patients with head and neck cancer. My primary clinical and research focus is on thyroid cancers and squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck. I also have an interest in diagnosing and treating the less common cancers of the head and neck, such as sinonasal undifferentiated carcinomas and salivary gland tumors.

Much of my research focuses on targeted therapy in the treatment of thyroid cancers (differentiated thyroid cancer, medullary thyroid cancer, and anaplastic thyroid cancer). I work very closely with Memorial Sloan Kettering researchers working in areas such as radiation oncology, endocrinology, nuclear medicine, pathology, and head and neck surgery to investigate novel treatment options for patients with cancers of the head and neck, or thyroid.
