Basic Research on Liver Cancer

At the UPMC Liver Cancer Center, many physicians and scientists are working actively on liver cancer research.

Dr. David A.Geller and his research team are studying the molecular mechanisms responsible for apoptosis (programmed cell death) of liver cancer cells. They are trying to determine whether some of our own cellular mediators (nitric oxide) can be used to destroy established liver tumor cells. Dr. Geller also is testing a novel noninvasive radiowave machine to destroy cancer cells.
