    Dr. Yurgelun is a gastrointestinal medical oncologist at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute affiliated with both the Gastrointestinal Cancer Center and the Cancer Genetics and Prevention Program.  He has a longstanding special interest in studying the diagnosis, phenotypes, and management of patients with Lynch syndrome and other hereditary gastrointestinal cancer syndromes. His current research includes studying the benefits and limitations of using widespread multi-gene panel testing – rather than criteria-based targeted genetic testing – in the evaluation of patients at risk for hereditary cancer syndromes.
