Jair C. Soares

Dr. Soares obtained his M.D. in 1990 from the University of Sao Paulo School of Medicine, Brazil. He completed his psychiatric training at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in neuroimaging research at the department of Psychiatry at Yale University School of Medicine. He has extensive clinical research experience on brain imaging, neurocognitive methods and clinical trials primarily in the field of mood disorders.

Michael A Thompson, MD, PhD

I am passionate about clinical trials, translational and basic science research. It is a tragedy that only 2-7% of adults participate in cancer clinical trials. The treatment standards of care we have today in oncology are built upon the clinical trial leadership and patient participation of the past. I am interested in: early phase (I/II) clinical trials, precision medicine, multiple myeloma and other B-cell malignancies (CLL, lymphoma, etc).
