About the Lab

The Auchincloss Laboratory, led by Hugh Auchincloss, MD, MPH, in the Division of Thoracic Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, uses institutional data combined with large national and international databases to answer questions about the treatment and prognosis of lung cancer and other thoracic surgery diseases. Currently, he is looking at trends in lung resection for patients with small-cell lung cancer, recurrence patterns for patients with resected carcinoid tumors and early predictors of the need for tracheostomy in cardiac surgery patients.
