Christine E. Eyler, MD, PhD
I am a radiation oncologist, which means I evaluate patients with cancer, determine the appropriate treatments, and design personalized radiation treatments. I value and incorporate the input of all the members of the cancer care team (surgeon, medical oncologist, radiologist, etc.) and take a team-based approach to make treatment recommendations. As a physician-scientist, I work in the laboratory to improve strategies for treating cancer, and I aim to take the solutions I identify in the laboratory back into the clinic to more effectively treat patients. Finally, I am a daughter, sister, wife, and mother who understands the toll that cancer can take on a patient and his or her family. In my treatment recommendations and plans, I aspire to incorporate not only the information about my patients’ medical conditions but also to design treatment approaches and plans that incorporate the values and preferences of patients and their loved ones.

Clinical Focus and Research
I believe the key to improving treatment for cancer patients starts at a very basic level of research. My laboratory research focuses on understanding the genetic, epigenetic, and molecular characteristics of cancer cells that resist typical treatments and finding ways to treat them more effectively. My goal is to apply this information to design personalized treatment strategies to effectively treat both sensitive and resistant tumor cells.
