Vered Stearns, MD
Professor of Oncology Co-Director of the Breast Cancer Program Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Dr. Stearns joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2002 and is best known for her ground-breaking work on the pharmacogenetics of tamoxifen and the use of biomarkers to implement new interventions for breast cancer treatment and prevention. Her research focuses on agents that target epigenetic modifications in breast cancer and gene methylation as a prognostic and predictive marker in breast cancer and she is internationally recognized for her research in improving therapeutic options for women who suffer vasomotor symptoms as well as elucidating the role of pharmacogenetics and tamoxifen-related outcomes. Originally from Israel, Dr. Stearns started a 7-year medical school program at the Tel-Aviv University in 1985 through an academic reserve program. She transferred to the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, at Camden, New Jersey, as a third year medical student where she was awarded her medical degree in 1992. She completed her internal medicine residency and fellowship training at Georgetown University where she trained under some of the most influential leaders in translational breast cancer research. During that time, Vered was one of the first investigators in the world to perform biomarker studies with novel therapies in the pre-surgical setting. As a clinician, Dr. Stearns sees patients as an attending physician on the inpatient service and for outpatient consultations. She also supervises fellows, residents, and medical students in outpatient and inpatient services. Dr. Stearns also leads an active research team at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and helped build the multidisciplinary breast cancer program. She was also instrumental in building the multidisciplinary translational research team and the infrastructure for innovative early clinical trials.

There's no evidence that any of these drugs actually save lives, says Vered Stearns of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
That may be because the drugs prevent only slow-growing or less aggressive tumors, which can be cured through standard treatment, Stearns says.


Chemotherapy Before Surgery May Bring Breast Cancer Metastasis - Breast Health and Healing

"Some women with breast cancer are more likely to have a recurrence of cancer and need to receive chemotherapy to lower this risk," Vered Stearns, MD, co-chair of the ASCO expert panel that developed the guideline update, said in a statement.
The study followed more than 6,500 women with early-stage breast cancer who had received breast surgery and then underwent the MammaPrint (Agendia) genomic test. Findings show that this genomic test reduces the prescription of chemotherapy by 46 percent. "The MammaPrint test can now be added to the list of tests that help clinicians identify women who need chemotherapy and those who do not," said Dr. Stearns, co-director of the Breast Cancer Program at The Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins, Baltimore, Maryland.
