Andrew Bauer Research Program

Led by Andrew J. Bauer researchers in the Bauer Research Program are focused on refining and improving the effectiveness, safety and quality of life outcomes of existing therapies that are used to treat pediatric thyroid nodules and differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). The long-term goal of the research conducted in this program is to refine treatment guidelines and best practices to minimize treatment-related late effects and improve medical and quality of life outcomes for children and adolescents with thyroid nodules and DTC.
