Practice Information:

Clinical Interest(s):
Caring for patients with bone and soft tissue sarcomas

Scientific Interest(s):

Dr. Arun Singh's focus is on developing novel therapies for patients with sarcomas. In the preclinical setting, he works on elucidating the mechanisms contributing to the promotion of growth in cancer cells and optimizing the use of targeted therapy in specific sarcoma subtypes. The insights gained from these efforts are then translated into the clinic in the form of new drugs in early stage Phase I and II clinical trials for sarcomas where there is an unmet clinical need.
