-- Dr. Steven E. Finkelstein, Scottsdale Board Certified Radiation Oncologist and National Director of 21st Century Oncology Translational Research Consortium (TRC), has been named a Worldwide Branding Professional of the Year in Radiation Oncology. While inclusion in Worldwide Branding is an honor, only a small selection of members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, years of service, and the credentials they have provided in association with their Worldwide Branding membership.
Dr. Steven Finkelstein became motivated to pursue a career in medicine after his grandmother became ill with cancer when he was 13 years old. He received an MD from the University of Michigan, where he graduated cum laude. Further, he completed a fellowship in surgical oncology and immunotherapy from the National Cancer Institute, and an internship in general surgery from the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Following completion of Chief Resident in Radiation Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center, he joined the 21st Century Oncology Translational Research Consortium (TRC) and was appointed its Director in 2011. In that role, he is responsible for advancing patient access to novel, advanced cancer care.
Currently, Dr. Finkelstein leads translational cancer research for 21st Century Oncology, a provider of high-quality radiation therapy and integrated cancer treatments. He is tasked with seeing and treating cancer patients five days a week. In recognition of his hard work and determination, Dr. Finkelstein has been presented with the Roentgen Research Award and with the 18th Annual Presidential Award by the International Society for Biological Therapy of Cancer (iSBTc).
Beyond his daily radiation oncology physician responsibilities with 21st Century Oncology, Dr. Finkelstein is an adjunct associate professor with the Translational Genomics Research Institute (Tgen) and a national Principal Investigator of the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG). He is also a Director of the Animal Radiation Imaging Immunotherapy Experimental Laboratory (ARIEL) and Executive Director of the Arizona Cancer Research Alliance (ACRA).
Recently inducted into Worldwide Branding, Dr. Finkelstein attributes his success to working hard for his patients and researching advanced cutting-edge radiation therapies. In fact, Dr. Finkelstein has published journal articles and book chapters resulting in more than 2000 reference citations, with topics that include clinical opportunities in combining immunotherapy with radiation therapy, and the confluence of stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) and tumor immunology.
Dr. Finkelstein is married, has three children and calls Scottsdale, Arizona home. In his free time he enjoys participating in activities with his beautiful family.
