Robert Homer, MD, PhD, a pathologist, specializes in detecting diseases including cancers in and around the lungs. He is particularly interested in lung diseases leading to fibrosis, including those from exposures to foreign materials. He became interested in pathology as a graduate student—he wanted to know more about the structure and mechanisms of disease.

Dr. Homer is a professor of pathology at Yale School of Medicine.

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
