Dr. Mostoufi-Moab is a dual-certified pediatric oncologist and endocrinologist with clinical expertise in endocrine late effects after childhood cancer therapy.

In addition, Yael Mossé, MD, was the recipient of the Frank A. Oski Memorial Lectureship, and was recognized for her exceptional work in neuroblastoma, a cancer that starts in the nerve tissues of infants and young children. In Dr. Mossé’s lab, researchers have made great strides in the knowledge of the hereditary predisposition and progression of neuroblastoma. They discovered the gene mutations that are the primary cause of the inherited version of neuroblastoma and that also plays a significant role in high-risk forms of the more common, non-inherited form of the disease.
