"Next Generation Sequencing and Cancer Treatment"
Dr. Milan Radovich
Department of Surgery
School of Medicine
Indiana University

Dr. Radovich's laboratory is focused on the use of next-generation sequencing technology in translational oncology. In particular, he is using this technology to identify novel drug targets to better treat triple-negative breast cancer, inflammatory breast cancer, and thymic malignancies. Dr. Radovich uses the technology to identify novel mutations that can help explain the causation of these diseases. His work is incorporated into the clinical enterprise of the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center, and actively works with a team of clinicians to recruit patient samples and to apply findings to correlative studies within clinical trials.
