Deputy Chief, Thoracic Oncology Service
Pictured: Lee Krug

My primary responsibility as a thoracic oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering is to care for patients with lung cancer and malignant pleural mesothelioma. I also run clinical trials that test novel drugs and treatment strategies for individuals with small cell lung cancer and mesothelioma.

I have a particular interest in therapies that boost the immune system to allow it to recognize and attack specific molecules on cancer cells. I have conducted studies testing cancer vaccines developed by scientists at our center in patients with small cell lung cancer and mesothelioma.
