Assistant Professor, Medicine (Oncology)

Small-cell lung cancer is recalcitrant cancer and the most aggressive form of lung malignancy. My research is focused on developing new therapies for small cell lung cancer in both preclinical and clinical settings. We are especially interested in identifying predictive biomarkers and drug resistance mechanisms. We use state-of-art genomic and high-throughput drug screenings to identify new targets and novel drug combinations. Our research employes cell lines, animal models, and patient samples.
