Niharika Bansal Mettu
Assistant Professor of Medicine

My long-term goal is to develop new therapies to treat patients with gastrointestinal and other solid tumors. To accomplish this, I am active in designing, writing, and running phase I and II clinical trials. I am also interested in the correlative science that furthers our understanding of cancer at a molecular level. I am interested in the identification of biomarkers, which are characteristics of a given patient's tumor that may help us to understand his or her prognosis or how well he or she may respond to a given therapy. The overall objective of this research is to use the knowledge gained to personalize care and find the very best therapies that will enable our patients to fight their cancer.
