Dr. Yamashiro's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Yamashiro "Darrell J. Yamashiro, MD, PhD is a pediatric oncologist who specializes in the care of children with pediatric solid tumors, especially neuroblastoma, Wilms' tumor and other kidney tumors, and liver tumors such hepatoblastoma and hepatocellular carcinoma. Although liver tumors in children are rare (they account for only one to two percent of childhood cancers), they can be very complex and require a multidisciplinary approach for optimal management. Dr. Yamashiro enjoys working as part of a team of physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, child life specialists, and other dedicated healthcare professionals who deeply care about patients and who provide care with compassion and comfort. Dr. Yamashiro also conducts basic science research. The latest advances in tumor genetics and the design of innovative therapies make this a very exciting time. For example, he and his team have done extensive research on the genetics of hepatoblastoma and developed mouse models, entering the phase of research where they are taking a personalized/precision medicine approach to this disease. They are also identifying novel genes that specifically target neuroblastoma-information that may be used to create targeted therapies."
