Bio

Dr. Susan Knox specializes in the treatment of breast cancer and melanoma, and sees a variety of general radiation oncology patients. She has practiced as a radiation oncologist for more than 25 years. A primary area of research in Dr. Knox’s laboratory is the study of novel therapies (targeted therapies, radiosensitizers, radioprotectors, and biological response modifiers) for the treatment of solid tumors, with a particular focus on prostate cancer, breast cancer and melanoma, using small animal tumor models. Her research is interdisciplinary and spans the study of mechanisms of action at the molecular level to translational studies and early clinical trials. Her drug discovery/development work, and research on innovative therapeutic approaches has resulted in 3 new ongoing clinical trials. A major focus of both her laboratory and clinical research is the use of radiation as a component of in situ tumor vaccine strategies. She has had a long -standing interest in clinical research and has served as a PI on numerous clinical trials and as a member of the Clinical Oncology Study Section. As the Faculty Director of the PRMS for the Stanford Cancer Institute, she oversees the Scientific Review Committee and chairs the Data and Safety Monitoring Committee.
