Yan Leyfman, MD

This week on Life Science Success guest Yan Leyfman, MD is a unique individual in life sciences and is someone we all need to be paying attention to. Yan was raised in the medically deprived community ravaged by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. In this episode, we are going to talk about his experience with Chernobyl, how that led to his career in medicine and what he has done to turn struggles into triumphs. Additionally, on June 4, 2021, at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting, he will be presenting the first mechanism in the literature that explains why cancer patients are susceptible to COVID-19 (https://meetinglibrary.asco.org/record/197714/abstract).
