Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research focused on developing better ways to diagnose and treat lung cancer. My laboratory has projects on early cancer detection with imaging, developing new blood tests for the diagnosis of lung cancer, and, more recently, we have discovered a new treatment for cancer using a human antibody that activates part of the immune system to specifically kill tumor cells.
