Joseph Paul Eder MD
Professor of Medicine (Medical Oncology)
Some particular areas of past and present involvement in the development of novel therapeutics include high dose chemotherapy, the modulation/ reversal of drug resistance, growth factors, vaccines, signal transduction pathway inhibitors, cell cycle inhibitors, and the therapeutic use of antiangiogenisis agents. In this area, I have interest in developing pharmacodynamic markers of antiangiogenic effects in the clinic including MRI and PET imaging, circulating endothelial cells, monitoring interstitial fluid pressures and the evaluation of tumor biopsies after therapy. The clinical role of pathways to resistance is an area of interest and I have led clinical trials of HGF/MET inhibitors combined with VEGF-targeted therapies.
