Poster # 3133 Albendazole Sensitizes Melanoma and Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells to Ionizing Radiation

Presenter: Kirtesh Patel, BA

About the Presenter:
My interest in the field of radiation oncology is developing novel approaches to make radiation therapy more effective. While at NYU, I was involved with drug repositioning research: the application of known drugs to new indications. I specifically studied how albendazole, an FDA approved anti-helminthic, can act as a radiosensitizer. I hope to continue this approach and others in further translational research projects.
