Dr. Roohi Ismail-Khan is a medical oncologist specializing in breast cancer in The Center for Women’s Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center.  She finds the field of breast medical oncology an exciting one as advances in treatment and the delivery of targeted therapies improve prognosis for everyone, including patients with advanced stage disease.  The knowledge that breast cancer is not just one disease, but many, just as every patient is unique, also sets a new standard in personalized care.

As a mother of four children herself, Dr. Ismail-Khan is aware of the psychosocial needs of women diagnosed with breast cancer, including the consequences of treatment affecting feelings about their femininity and the impact on the family dynamic.

Dr. Ismail-Khan’s research interests include reducing or eliminating long-term side effects of chemotherapy to improve quality of life.  She is also focused on triple negative breast cancer; an aggressive disease that responds well to therapy, but often recurs and spreads.  The question why is a challenge that medical oncologists must answer. Dr. Ismail-Khan was selected to present her research on triple negative breast cancer at the prestigious ASCO/ACCR “Methods in Clinical Research” Conference in Colorado.

Dr. Ismail-Khan speaks several languages, including Spanish, Urdu and Hindi.
