Uterine Cancer Awareness Month Researcher Feature: Nikita Sinha, MD

Nikita Sinha, MD of UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, is the FWC 2023-2024 recipient of the Laughlin Family Foundation Research Grant for High-Grade Uterine Cancer.

In this video, Dr. Sinha discusses her research that explores the impact of race and the uterine gut biome on the progression and treatment of endometrial cancer.

“I am so incredibly grateful for the research grant funding provided for young investigators,” Dr. Sinha shares. “I can name several colleagues and mentors who have had their research career started through this funding, and that really enables groundbreaking research to be done in the gynecologic cancers for us to be able to be at the same level at the other cancer types. I think it’s also just so important for raising awareness about the gynecologic cancers for the public as well as education for our own patients that is all made possible by the donations.”
