Research

Dr. Perez is interested in integration of radiation therapy with novel systemic agents including immunotherapeutics for the treatment of patients with lung cancers and mesothelioma. Additionally, he has a strong interest in combining each patient’s clinical situation with detailed information regarding the molecular makeup of their tumor to improve delivery of personalized radiation therapy for patients with thoracic malignancies.
