Cancer-Focused Research:

Dr. Jyoti D. Patel’s primary focus has been in the treatment of thoracic

malignancies. She has been active in the clinical development of agents

targeted to the EGFR in non-small cell lung cancer. She has been involved

in the incorporation of these agents as part of induction therapy and

in a specific type of lung tumor, bronchioloalveolar carcinoma. Given

early reports of increased activity noted in women, she is interested

in finding other targets of action that are either unique to women or

overexpressed in women. Furthermore, because lung cancer seemingly has

a different biology in women, she is interested in differences in susceptibility

as well as survival. She is interested in advocacy for those affected

by lung cancer. She sees screening patients who are at high risk, educating

young men and women about the harmful effects of tobacco smoke to ensure

a population that is not addicted, and providing support for those who

are trying to quit smoking all functions of her role as a thoracic oncologist.
