In addition to his role as a practicing oncologist, Robert R. McWilliams, M.D., conducts research using genomic technology to improve care for people with cancer. Dr. McWilliams' research focuses on genetic epidemiology, mainly in the area of pancreatic cancer. Dr. McWilliams uses the knowledge and experience gained through his research to design clinical trials using genomic technology for gastrointestinal cancer and melanoma. His goal is to translate findings to clinical practice.
Dr. McWilliams strives to broaden clinical trial options for people with cancer. He focuses mainly on rare cancers and diseases for which current standard therapies are inadequate. By leveraging technology such as genomic sequencing, Dr. McWilliams hopes to more thoroughly evaluate potential therapeutic targets and make rapid clinical impacts for these rare diseases.
