We Are Weill Cornell Medicine: Dr. Christopher Barbieri

Friday, February 10, 2017

Dr. Christopher Barbieri was the type of kid who would press every button in the house, much to his parents’ chagrin. Ultimately he learned to put that inquisitiveness to good use as a doctor and scientist, and discovered a new form of prostate cancer.

“My approach to the world is still to push every button, try to investigate every option. What really drives me is the opportunity for discovery,” said Dr. Barbieri, an assistant professor of urology at Weill Cornell Medicine. “The fact that there are no barriers between departments here allows great doctors from different disciplines to come together; the goal is to take the best care of the patient.”

He is the latest faculty member to be featured as part of the #WeAreWCM campaign.
