NSA would like to congratulate our EVP, Doug Frankel on his recent . TrovaNOW is an international, multi-institutional collaborative consortium of world-renowned experts in pancreatic cancer, assembling the largest high-risk patient cohort, with biospecimen collection and longitudinal clinical data.

Doug joined National Search Associates in 1993 and leads our Firm’s retained search division. In 2001 Doug’s life was forever changed when his father, Michael Frankel, passed away at 57 years old from a pancreatic tumor that had metastasized to his liver, at that time Doug put his recruiting on hold while he did everything he could to give his dad more time. Through his association within the oncology community and several notable physicians in industry and academia Michael lived another 18 months. This was a very pivotal time for Doug which resulted in him dedicating a significant portion of his recruiting practice to specialize in clinical oncology.

We are very excited for Doug and his appointment as a member of TrovaNOW’s Board of Directors.
