The lab also studies the wide-ranging effects of sympathetic stress response and the multiple mechanisms by which chronically elevated stress hormones promote tumor progression. In current research, the lab is studying the potential for combining the β-blocker propranolol to radiation for enhancing anti-tumor immune responses for the treatment of cancer.
