Marcus Goncalves, MD, PhD

Marcus Goncalves is an endocrinologist and basic scientist at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York. His research focuses on the interaction between cancer and the metabolites and hormones that regulate systemic metabolism. As a practicing endocrinologist, he has developed therapeutic and dietary strategies to modulate systemic glucose and insulin levels in patients with cancer, and he is currently involved in several clinical studies to assess the effects of a very low carbohydrate (ketogenic) diet in this population. Dr. Goncalves is in receipt of a National Cancer Institute Career Development Award, a Lung Cancer Research Foundation Award, and is the founder of the Strength and Appetite clinic at Weill Cornell, which cares for patients with cancer-induced cachexia and other metabolic disease.
