Hepatobiliary -- Clinical Research Program

Hepatobiliary cancers include those of the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas. Our research team also develops treatments for metastatic cancers that arise elsewhere in the body and spread to these organs.

Our team has developed techniques that spare healthy tissue during surgery and result in reduced blood loss. In addition, we have been at the forefront of nonsurgical approaches such as tumor embolization, radiofrequency ablation, and cryosurgery. We have also pioneered innovative chemotherapy approaches for these cancers, including new methods of delivering anticancer agents directly to the liver. Research by our pathologists and radiologists has led to advances in diagnostic and prognostic approaches.
