Overview

Cancer Types Treated: Lung Cancer , Mesothelioma , Pancoast Tumor

Dr. Andreas Saltos earned his MD from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. He completed his Internal Medicine Residency at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore before moving to Tampa, where he completed a Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine and Moffitt Cancer Center. Dr. Saltos specializes in the treatment of thoracic malignancies, including all forms and stages of lung cancer.  In his clinical practice he strives to match patients with the optimal treatments that are tailored to their specific cancer and individual needs.  The ability to work with an incredible cancer team and apply the latest advances to treat patients in the clinic is what makes him excited to work at Moffitt. He also dedicates a significant portion of his effort to research.  His focus is in clinical research aiming to find better treatments for lung cancers, including using new strategies for targeted therapy and immunotherapy.  He is currently leading and developing clinical trials investigating novel drugs or treatment combinations which either target the specific genetic features of lung cancers or recruit the immune system to combat cancer.  One of Dr. Saltos’ favorite speeches is by Jim Valvano at the 1993 ESPY awards, which he delivered during his battle with cancer.  He provides an insightful perspective on life and brings attention to the mission of cancer research; he closes with “Cancer can take away all my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart and it cannot touch my soul. And those three things are going to carry on forever.”
