Technique and technology are critical when it comes to cancer surgery. But both aspects often get trumped by a tumor’s unique biology. To be a top cancer surgeon, you need a deep understanding of cancer biology.
From his early days studying stem cells to treat cancer, Dr. Claudius Conrad has pursued a deeper understanding of cancer. He has guided his research groups to not only improve minimally invasive cancer surgery, but to explore mechanisms of the disease. As a result, they have successfully translated their findings into clinical care and continue fine-tuning new cancer therapies.
To best help future patients, Dr. Conrad believes that partnering with the medical industry can provide the infrastructure, technology and other support researchers need. He also encourages industry to reach out to physician investigators as soon as possible, to identify unmet needs and make sure novel developments remain clinically relevant.
In addition to studying how HPB tumors form and evolve, Dr. Conrad leads research into:
