Dr. Anthony Sandler Named to the Diane and Norman Bernstein Professorship in Pediatric Surgery at Children's National Medical Center
Date:5/26/2009

Children’s National Medical Center has appointed Dr. Anthony Sandler as the Diane and Norman Bernstein Professor in Pediatric Surgery.

Washington, DC (Vocus) May 26, 2009 -- Children’s National Medical Center has appointed Dr. Anthony Sandler as the Diane and Norman Bernstein Professor in Pediatric Surgery. It is Children’s first-ever endowed professorship in the Joseph E. Robert, Jr. Center for Surgical Care. Sandler is chief for general and thoracic surgery, and is a funded researcher in cancer vaccines.

Sandler, whose brother died of pancreatic cancer last year, said, “My passion is to find better ways of treating devastating childhood and adult cancers. Despite the often heroic attempts of our craft, we are frequently unable to cure so many patients with cancer. The concept we are pursuing in the laboratory is an attempt to exploit the patient’s own immune system and teach the body to heal itself by targeting the cancer. We have made significant progress in our research endeavor, but have much work yet to do, and this endowment will help us immensely.”

The $2 million endowment was created through the leadership of Diane and Norman Bernstein, long-time supporters of Children’s National. Most notably, Norman has served on the hospital’s finance committee and Diane championed two highly successful programs that are now mainstays at Children’s, the Child Life program and New Horizons, an art enrichment program.

“We are honored to have the opportunity to recognize the outstanding work of Dr. Anthony Sandler, who has demonstrated extraordinary achievement in pediatric surgery,” said Diane Bernstein. “We are proud to provide the leadership and support so that groundbreaking advances will be made in the treatment and ultimate cure of many difficult childhood problems.”
