Amir Goldkorn, M.D. is an assistant professor of medicine at the Keck School of Medicine. Dr. Goldkorn is board certified in medical oncology and internal medicine, and he specializes in genitourinary (GU) malignancies – cancers of the prostate, bladder, kidney, and testis. Dr. Goldkorn completed his undergraduate studies at Harvard University, graduating magna cum laude. He pursued his graduate medical studies at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). After completing his internal medicine residency and board certification at UCLA, he pursued a clinical hematology/oncology fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), where he sub-specialized in the treatment of GU malignancies and completed a postdoctoral research fellowship with Elizabeth Blackburn in the field of telomerase and cancer. At USC, Dr. Goldkorn cares for patients with advanced GU malignancies, and he participates as an investigator in several ongoing clinical trials at Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Goldkorn’s laboratory research interests are in the area of experimental therapeutics, and his lab focuses on targeting telomerase, an enzyme that is critical for cancer cell proliferation and tumor growth. Telomerase-interfering constructs are delivered systemically using targeted lipidic nanoparticles that specifically home in on tumor cells. Dr. Goldkorn’s lab also studies novel therapeutic approaches to cancer stem cells, a unique sub-population of tumor cells with the capacity to self-renew and to differentiate into additional tumors, possibly remaining unscathed by current treatments. Successful targeting of cancer stem cells, by telomerase interference or by other strategies, may be the key to eliminating deadly cancer recurrences and metastases. HISTORY & EDUCATION
