The research in my laboratory for the past 30 years has been directed towards the areas of experimental chemotherapy and radiotherapy in cancer, with a primary focus on breast cancer and lung cancer. Work has been largely focused on sensitization of lung cancer and breast cancer to radiotherapy and chemotherapy. These efforts have also served to define autophagy and senescence (rather than apoptosis) as primary responses to both chemotherapy and radiotherapy in solid tumor cell models. We have established the existence of cytostatic and cytotoxic functions of autophagy in lung cancer cells and breast cancer cells while recent work has also identified a non-protective form of autophagy that is critical to understanding why efforts towards chemosensitization and radiosensitization via autophagy inhibition may prove to be particularly challenging in the absence of appropriate predictive biomarkers. Current work is focused on approaches for establishing the reversibility of senescence both in cell culture and tumor bearing animal models, with the longer term goal of understanding the role of senescence in sensitivity (or refractoriness) to therapy in breast and lung cancer.
