The lecture will take place at 5 p.m. at the Cultural Center Theatre.

Dr. Golshan, pictured at right, organizes clinical services for more than 2,000 patients annually, and has helped build one of the world’s largest breast surgery programs which includes 11 full-time breast surgeons operating on nearly 3,000 women a year. Additionally, he organizes the clinical and research efforts of the visiting international breast surgical oncology scholars at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Dana Farber Cancer Institute. He also is an Associate Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School. 
Dr. Golshan is leading efforts to build two hospitals in China and relationships with the Middle East and South America, and is the incumbent Dr. Abdul Mohsen and Sultana Al-Tuwaijri Distinguished Chair in Surgical Oncology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He is the youngest faculty member to receive this distinction.

Prior to his current work, Dr. Golshan served as the Director of Breast Surgical Services at the Dana Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center from 2007 to 2015.

Dr. Golshan's research interest is focused primarily on neoadjuvant therapies (first step treatments) for breast cancer and the use of novel imaging and operative technologies targeting breast carcinoma. The focus of his preoperative therapy trials is to target treatment for women with cancer and develop genotypic profiles that will lead to individualized therapies for women with breast cancer in the future. He is also researching the role of intraoperative and preoperative imaging. In the United States, nearly 40 percent of women who undergo lumpectomy will need a second operation to achieve clear margins.

Please join us for this informative lecture. A cocktail reception will follow and you will have an opportunity to meet Dr. Golshan.
