“I’m passionate about conducting research on the care of breast cancer patients,” says Radiation Oncologist Dr. Mira Goldberg. “The Dr. Mark Levine Fellowship has enabled me to develop an expertise in foundational research, including clinical trials and observational studies, as well as clinical care in this area.”

After she completed her residency training at Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre in 2016, Dr. Goldberg was awarded the Foundation-funded Fellowship and she embarked on a journey of exploration and discovery.

“I’m extremely grateful for the opportunities that the Fellowship has afforded me.”

Dr. Goldberg’s research focused on various aspects of patient care, including treatment options for older patients with early breast cancer, and the development of new guidelines for radiation planning, which will be used in clinical trials.

“Under the mentorship of Dr. Timothy Whelan and Dr. Mark Levine, the Fellowship has allowed me to participate in research that can ultimately affect patient outcomes,” explains Dr. Goldberg. “I’m extremely grateful for the opportunities that the Fellowship has afforded me. This was made possible by the generous donors who support Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre Foundation.”
