Dr. Heather Han is a medical oncologist specializing in breast cancer in The Center for Women’s Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center. She is dedicated to helping find a cure for the millions of women whose lives have been affected by a diagnosis of breast cancer.
Dr. Han finds that Moffitt Cancer Center offers a unique health care environment in that outstanding physicians in every discipline work together for a common cause in the battle against cancer. She believes that the future of cancer is to provide personalized treatment for every patient. Moffitt’s Total Cancer Care initiative is making great strides toward this goal.
Dr. Han is currently researching outcomes among breast cancer patients of different nationalities, including Asian, African American, Hispanic and Caucasian, to determine whether race may have an impact on disparities in chemotherapy toxicity. She is also a principal investigator for phase one and phase two clinical trials evaluating novel targeted breast cancer therapies designed to improve prognosis, reduce side-effects and improve quality of life.
