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

Hello, my name is Michael Wang. I was a trained physician and am a longtime representative of the National Foundation for Cancer Research, where I’m proud to have served in such roles as chief scientific officer and chief strategy officer.

My NFCR colleagues and I have created this online platform with the goal in mind of a trusted, helpful and easy-to-navigate resource 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 personal 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 three links to reputable third-party sources—the first addressing the coronavirus, including its impact on cancer patients, the second focused more generally on practical resources for all and the third serving as a tool to help you decide whether to get tested.

Please let my team and me know what else may be useful by contacting us by e-mail at
