University of Cincinnati Cancer Center surgeon Sameer Patel, MD, an assistant professor in the department of surgery, division of surgical oncology, and a UC Health surgical oncologist, was named one of the country’s top “40 Under 40 in Cancer,” an award that identifies and recognizes “rising stars and emerging leaders” in the field of oncology under 40 years old.

The award, in its third year, is sponsored by the Lynx Group, Upstream Partners, Swim Across America and the National Community Oncology Dispensing Association Inc. Awardees were selected by a panel of reviewers.
