Provider Database

The provider database is currently being updated. Please check back later. For immediate information, consult the Yahoo forum or contact the Foundation.

The database will include the names of institutions and physicians who have been recommended by patients and their caregivers, as well as those institutions recognized for their interest and activity in treating thymic neoplasms.

In addition, if ITMIG is awarded an NIH grant, it will create the Thymic Epithelial Malignancies Consortium to perform research involving thymoma, thymic carcinoma and thymic carcinoid tumors. Through the Consortium members, you will have the opportunity to participate in research efforts and up-to-date treatment protocols.

The Consortium institutions include:

The University of Toronto
The Massachusetts General Hospital
Yale University
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
The Valley Hospital/Valley Health System
The University of Pennsylvania
Indiana University
MD Anderson Cancer Center
The Mayo Clinic
Stanford University
The University of Heidelberg
University Medical Center Gottingen

The original provider database, still to be updated:

The following providers have been suggested by patients, or have been published extensively in the area of thymic cancer or thymoma. References to any entity, product, service, provider, or source of information contained in this site should not be considered an endorsement, either direct or implied.

We are constantly updating the database. If you would like to recommend a provider, please email us. Thank you.
