The research interests of Matthew M. Ames, Ph.D., focus on the study and evaluation of novel anti-cancer agents, with an emphasis on those with novel molecular targets and the role of genetic variation (pharmacogenetics) in how patients individually respond to drug-based cancer therapies.
Dr. Ames' studies with tamoxifen, and especially endoxifen, will hopefully lead to a new, effective therapy for the treatment of estrogen receptor positive breast cancer.
