Dr. Maryam Lustberg is a medical oncologist who specializes in treating breast cancer. She treats patients in all stages of the disease. Her clinical practice is dedicated to providing personalized care combined with the latest advances in breast cancer and survivorship. In 2013, she was awarded the highest outpatient satisfaction in the Division of Medical Oncology at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
Her research interests focus on improving the long-term outcomes for breast cancer patients who have developed side effects associated with treatment and on investigating novel blood-based biomarkers to identify recurrence and treatment toxicity earlier. She is also interested in food-based interventions that may modulate inflammation as it relates symptoms experienced by cancer survivors. She has led and authored several studies that have provided new insights into the development and treatment of these conditions, such as peripheral neuropathy and febrile neutropenia.
Dr. Lustberg serves as the Director of the Breast Cancer Survivorship Program at the OSUCCC – James. She is also a member of the Cancer Control Research Program, a program that specializes in identifying molecular, genetic and behavioral factors associated with cancer. “If we can identify the root of disease, we can reduce the incidence, mortality and morbidity of cancer while increasing survivorship and enhancing quality of life.” – Dr. Maryam Lustberg
