    • Professor RS.ORIO IRB
    • Graduate Programs in Human Nutrition School of Medicine

Dr. Schuff has clinical and research interests in pituitary and thyroid neoplasms and hormone regulation. She has conducted clinical research projects designed to improve diagnostic procedures as well as treatment modalities for patients with pituitary tumors including Cushing's syndrome, pituitary hormone deficiencies and thyroid cancer. She helps direct the Thyroid Tumor Clinic, a multidisciplinary clinic staffed by endocrinologists and otolaryngologists with close interaction with OHSU's head and neck radiologist and nuclear medicine staff to provide comprehensive, coordinated care for patients with thyroid and parathyroid disease.
