Dr. Daniel Moore lost his grandfather to prostate cancer when he was four years old. While in high school, he began to learn how biology research was unraveling mysteries of cancer. And from TV, he learned how researchers at the National Institutes of Health were hoping that "tumor infiltrating lymphocytes" would someday cure some cancers. His personal impact with cancer at a young age and his later scientific curiosity as a student both inspired Dr. Moore to pursue medicine, specifically cancer care. "I understand how cancer affects the lives of patients and their loved ones," Dr. Moore says. "Now I am a cancer doctor prescribing immune therapies to my patients, including those like my grandfather suffering from prostate cancer." Following three years of his Hematology/Oncology Fellowship at the Lombardi Cancer Center at Georgetown University, Dr. Moore spent an extra year at the university working with patients who participated in early phases of chemotherapy drug development. Since completing the fellowship in 2005, now as a cancer doctor practicing in the community, Dr. Moore continues helping to develop new and better therapies by offering patients an opportunity to participate in later phase clinical trials. "Patients are able to receive exciting new therapies that may soon be FDA approved and are helping the next generation of cancer patients to determine the best therapies," he says. Dr. Moore hopes to see newer innovative technologies to help diagnose cancer earlier and discover the mechanism of how cancer occurs and persists. When he is not working with his patients, Dr. Moore can be found kayaking, cycling, or hiking.
