Bryan J. Schneider, M.D.
I have been interested in the care of cancer patients since I was a junior at the University of Notre Dame. My training at the Indiana University School of Medicine gave me strong clinical skills, but my Oncology training at the University of Michigan helped me realize the need for better treatment for our patients. Lung cancer research is behind many of the other cancers and better therapy is desperately needed for a disease that afflicts over 160,000 Americans annually. I was offered a faculty position at every major medical center in the city, but chose Weill Cornell because of the sincere commitment to excellent patient care while fostering cutting-edge research to help take better care of future patients.
