News, Past Lectures
Please join us in the Cultural Center Theatre at 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 7, for a presentation sponsored by Healthnetwork called “What’s New in Prostate Cancer Care” with speaker Eric A. Klein, M.D.

Prostate cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers in America, second only to skin cancer. Recent publications have raised questions concerning how to determine the best diagnostic tool and what determines the best treatment plan.  

Dr. Klein is the international leader in the biology and management of prostate cancer. A 23-year Cleveland Clinic veteran, he serves as Chairman of the Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute, the nation's No. 1 urology and nephrology program according to U.S. News & World Report.   

Dr. Klein is the Andrew C. Novick Chair of the Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute and Professor of Surgery in the Lerner College of Medicine of Cleveland Clinic. Following undergraduate training at Johns Hopkins University, he was a cum laude graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He subsequently completed residency training in Urology at the Cleveland Clinic and a fellowship in Urologic Oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. He joined the staff of the Cleveland Clinic in 1989 and currently serves as a member of the Department of Cancer Biology of the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute, the Taussig Cancer Institute, and the Genitourinary Malignancies Program in the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Dr. Klein’s clinical and research interests cover all of urologic oncology and particularly clinical trials for localized and locally advanced prostate cancer. Under his direction, the Cleveland Clinic has recognized the Prostate Cancer Research Program as “Program of the Year.”

He has served as Chairman of the Localized Prostate Cancer Committee of the Southwest Oncology Group and was the National Study Coordinator for the NCI-sponsored Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial (SELECT). Dr. Klein has contributed more than 400 scientific literature papers, authored or edited eight books about urologic malignancies, and serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Urology. He has delivered more than 200 invited scientific lectures including 10 named lectureships, and has served as a Visiting Professor at more than 50 institutions around the world. Dr. Klein was awarded the F. Mason Sones Innovation Award by the Cleveland Clinic in 2009 and the Joe V. Meigs Award by the Society of Pelvic Surgeons in 2013, and received a Presidential Citation for career contributions from the American Urological Association in 2014.
