Helping the cancer community stay informed, prepared and protected
during a challenging time which will be overcome—together.

Michael Wang, M.D., Ph.D.

Hello, my name is Michael Wang. In addition to being a proud member of the Asian Fund for Cancer Research’s scientific advisory board, I was a trained physician and am a longtime representative of the U.S.-based National Foundation for Cancer Research. There I serve as chief strategy officer, and in the past I was its chief scientific officer.

I am pleased to have my Expert’s Advice advisory posts be featured here on AFCR’s online platform that is designed for members of the cancer community seeking accurate information and reliable guidance during the coronavirus pandemic. It has been created with cancer patients and their caregivers first and foremost in mind, and we hope it serves them well.

Immediately below you will find a link to numerous messages that I am communicating on a regular basis, full of actionable advice, best practices and summaries of pertinent scientific findings. And below that are two links to reputable third-party sources—the first addressing the coronavirus, including its impact on cancer patients, and the second focused more generally on practical resources for all.
