She supports patient participation in well-designed clinical trials to answer important scientific questions about breast cancer.
Dr. Specht earned her M.D. at the UW. Her clinical and research interests include breast cancer genetics and investigational breast cancer treatments, molecular imaging with FDG PET and DCE-MRI to understand in vivo biology of locally-advanced and inflammatory breast cancer and Triple-negative (ER, PR, and HER2 negative) breast cancer.
