As a member of the OSUCCC – James Molecular Biology and Cancer Genetics Program, John Phay, MD, focuses his research on treatments for thyroid cancer.

He is the co-holder of European and U.S. patents for an intraoperative use of fluorescence spectroscopy and applications of same, which has been licensed for a product to identify parathyroids intraoperatively using auto fluorescence and recently FDA-approved for such use.

His work in creating a molecular imaging agent for medullary thyroid cancer has shown promising results in mouse models and may allow intraoperative detection to improve surgical outcomes. His team is the first to show intraoperative fluorescent imaging of the cervical thoracic duct, which is the most common complication during a neck dissection for cancer.

Dr. Phay has co-authored numerous articles appearing in well-respected publications, including Surgery, Annals of Surgical Oncology and Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. He has also made many presentations to organizations, including the World Molecular Imaging Congress, the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons and the Academic Surgical Congress.
