Dr. Elizabeth Grubbs is the Program Director for the fellowship in Complex General Surgical Oncology at UTMDACC Department of Surgical Oncology. Her clinical practice is dedicated to the treatment of benign and malignant thyroid, adrenal, and parathyroid disease. Her clinical and research interests focus on the treatment of hereditary endocrine neoplasias. She serves as director of MDACC’s multi-disciplinary Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Specialty Clinic. She’s particularly interested in the genotype-phenotype correlation within and among different germline RET mutations. She also studies non-RET mediated mechanisms of medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) with the goal of identifying potential pathways for new MTC therapeutics. Grant funding has led her to create independent research program in cancer-related health services research that incorporates emerging knowledge from molecular epidemiology and genetics. Her grant from American Cancer Society identifies key clinical and molecular factors affecting the clinical course of MTC.
