Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

The research program focuses on clinical trials involving new investigational agents for the treatment of a wide range of cancers. Active clinical trials include studies involving doxorubicin and taxol and agents that reverse resistance to these drugs, such as PSC 833.

Other interests include phase I and II studies using anti-sense DNA, targeting PKC-alpha in ovarian cancer and the role of gene-modified autologous T cells engineered to recognize the TAG-72 antigen on colon cancer cells.
