“Hollywood's Top Doctors Revealed: Exclusive Survey. Surgery: Dr. F. Charles Brunicardi”
“A CD from a notable MD. Can a world class surgeon become a world famous musician? Dr. F. Charles Brunicardi, MD '80 is on his way with a new CD of songs. He is perhaps the only person who has or ever will have created both a book about surgery and songs about the beach on iTunes. That’s because when he’s not performing resections of neuro- endocrine tumors, F. Charles Brunicardi, MD Professor, Moss Foundation Chair in Gastrointestinal and Personalized Surgery, and vice chair, Department of Surgery, at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, is strumming his vintage 1954 Gibson guitar and musically musing about life. Editor-in-chief of the textbook Schwartz’s Principles of Surgery, Dr. Brunicardi’s sister Pat was instrumental in getting the songs online at ReverbNation.com. He points out that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of his album goes to cancer research. To hear samples from the tracks search for Chuck Brunicardi on iTunes or visit www.chuckbrunicardi.com”

"A Master of Music and Medicine" For most mere mortals the chances of becoming a surgeon are slim at best. The chances of landing a record deal are even more minute. The chances of doing both? Impossible. Unless you’re Chuck Brunicardi – country/folk singer and Chief of General surgery at UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica."
" as a dedicated researcher, Dr. Brunicardi discovered a “master switch” for pancreatic cancer, an insulin-regulating transcription factor called PDX1 that, when silenced with RNA interference or knockdown therapy, eliminates pancreatic-cancer cells in mice. He has partnered with a biotechnology company, Gradalis, Inc., to produce a bifunctional short hairpin RNA that silences the transcription factor and is applying for permission to launch a Phase 1 clinical trial in humans." Pat's Note: CD % profit toward Chuck's pioneering cancer research. Thank you!
