Research Description

As a clinical researcher in Hematology/Oncology, Dr. Ramaswamy is investigating new methods to identify which breast tumors are resistant to hormone therapy. By understanding what makes theses tumors resistant, researchers may be able to develop alternative therapies. For example, scientists might be able to develop a co-agent that would increase the ability of these tumors to respond to hormone therapies.
