Advancements In Cancer Treatment


The treatment of cancer is on the cusp of change and part of that is coming from Charlotte. Several doctors at Levine Cancer Institute are involved in new clinical trials and treatments, among them targeted gene therapy which allows for specialized treatment tailored to each patient’s particular cancer. That therapy alone holds the promise of less debilitating treatment and better cure rates. We hear from some of the doctors involved in that research.

Dr. Derek Raghavan MD, PhD, FACP, FRACP - President, Levine Cancer Institute

Dr. Earle Burgess - Medical Oncologist, Levine Cancer Institute

Dr. Jonathan Gerber -Hematologist and Director of the Leukemia Program, Levine Cancer Institute
