Research Description

Dr. Roychowdhury is a physician scientist in medical oncology focusing on translational cancer genomics and implementing precision cancer medicine. His clinical practice in medical oncology includes patients with advanced, metastatic cancer including prostate, colorectal, and rare cancer subtypes. The overarching goals of the lab include 1) utilizing genomic testing strategies for patients with advanced cancer, 2) identifying the right drug(s) and trials for patients with advanced cancer using genomic testing, 3) identification and study of predictive genomic biomarkers for targeted therapies, 4) genomics or mutation-based clinical trials, and 5) elucidating primary and secondary resistance mechanisms for targeted therapies. This includes a CLIA grade Cancer Genomics Laboratory for validated and targeted genomic assays and research grade, discovery whole exome/RNA sequencing.
