Diana E. Lake, MD

I am a medical oncologist with a practice that is devoted solely to the care of breast cancer patients. My research interests involve all areas of breast cancer but focus mainly on the development of new therapies, prevention of cancer recurrence following surgery, and treatment of recurrent disease. Working in conjunction with my colleagues on the Breast Cancer Medicine Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering and as the liaison in breast medicine to Cancer and Leukemia Group B (a national clinical trial cooperative research group sponsored by the National Cancer Institute), I am involved in clinical trials to develop better hormonal therapies and improved approaches to treatment before surgery. In addition, I am a member of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Scientific Review Committee, and I previously served on the NIH Cooperative Group Review and its Cancer Education committees.
