Fahey Zarnegar Lab

Welcome to the forefront of surgical research led by Dr. Thomas Fahey and Dr. Rasa Zarnegar at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. Our interdisciplinary lab is dedicated to advancing endocrine and robotic foregut surgery, with a particular focus on thyroid, adrenal, pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, and gastric cancer. Utilizing state-of-the-art techniques and human cancer cell lines, we strive to deepen our understanding of these diseases and pioneer innovative treatment modalities.

Beyond our investigations into endocrine disorders, our team is at the vanguard of robotic foregut surgery research. By harnessing the power of robotics, we aim to enhance surgical precision and patient outcomes in complex foregut procedures. Moreover, our lab is committed to unraveling the intricacies of gastric cancer, exploring novel approaches to diagnosis, treatment, and patient care.

Our collaborative efforts extend beyond the laboratory bench to encompass robust clinical research initiatives focused on surgical outcomes and medical education. Through the integration of cutting-edge science and compassionate care, we are dedicated to translating our discoveries into tangible advancements that elevate the standard of surgical practice. Join us in our mission to redefine the boundaries of surgical innovation and improve patient outcomes in endocrine and foregut surgery.
