Meet the Researcher: Bruce Spiegelman

Cancer patients often lose weight during treatment, which can limit their ability to withstand treatment and their quality of life. How can we fix this – and what role does energy metabolism play in cancer, and health overall?

Those are the questions researcher Bruce Spiegelman, PhD, and his team at Dana-Farber are focused on answering. “The ultimate goal is to make a difference in the clinic,” he explains.

Watch as Spiegelman explains how metabolism plays a role in cancer and how his team is using basic science to improve clinical care.
