Antonio C. Wolff, M.D., is Professor of Oncology at Johns Hopkins University and a member of the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. A clinician and researcher, Dr. Wolff’s research interests include new treatment strategies, the development and implementation of prognostic and predictive biomarkers (tissue, blood, and imaging) in clinical practice, and how to improve the survivorship experience of breast cancer patients and their caregivers.

He promotes the implementation of research findings in clinical practice, survivorship, and quality of care for breast cancer patients. Dr. Wolff is the Chief Operating Officer of the Translational Breast Cancer Research Consortium (TBCRC)—a research group funded by Komen and that convenes a multidisciplinary group of researchers who plan and conduct studies to better understand breast cancer biology and test new therapies. He is also an Associate Editor of the Journal of Clinical Oncology and Chair of the NCI ECOG-ACRIN Breast Cancer Committee. Dr. Wolff’s Komen funding supports the development of a tissue and bodily fluid repository that has patient samples linked to clinical data and surveys that can be used to answer critical research questions.
