Shanu Modi, MD

About Me

I am a medical oncologist with a clinical practice that is devoted solely to the care of patients with breast cancer. My research activities are focused on the clinical development of new therapies for the treatment of breast cancer, with a particular emphasis on evaluating targeted biological anticancer agents. Currently, I am involved in phase I and phase II clinical trials to evaluate novel anti-HER2 therapies. Additional information about these clinical trials is available on Memorial Sloan Kettering’s website.

Insurance

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
