Although there is a thread:
   http://forum.tnbcfoundation.org/Oncologist-recommendations-from-members_topic5721_page2.html
there is no one listed in northern VIrginia.
There is some general info on that thread about finding TNBC experts at NCCN and NCI centers
with links.

Looks like 3 of the closest NCCN/NCI centers to north Virginia might be:
NORTH CAROLINA
   -Lisa Carey, MD       
        University of North Carolina-Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center          Chapel HIll, NC
        http://cancer.unc.edu/research/faculty/displayMember.asp?ID=25
        http://www.tnbcfoundation.org/ourpeople_carey.htm
   -Carey Anders, MD            
        University of North Carolina-Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center          Chapel HIll, NC

MARYLAND
-Tatiana (Tanya) Prowell, MD
     Johns Hopkins                                Baltimore MD

PENNSYLVANIA

-Massimo Cristofanilli, MD     IBC - Inflammatory Breast Cancer expert)
      Fox Chase Cancer Center                      Philadelphia
      http://www.fccc.edu/physicians/medical/cristofanilli.html


Would any one know of TNBC experts in north Virginia or other NCCN or NCI cancer centers
close to north Virginia in addition to those listed above?
