Research Description

My research laboratory is focused on understanding why cancers don’t always respond to treatment. We use patient-derived xenografts—patient tumor samples grown in animals—to test radiation, chemotherapy and combinations of therapies to understand which characteristics of a patient’s tumor may predict response to treatment. The goal of this work is to enable more personalized treatment and to find ways to combine different treatment methods to decrease treatment side effects without reducing cure rates.
