Profile of Dr. Peter Cole

headshot of Dr. ColeMy research focuses on improving the lives of children, adolescents and young adults with cancer. I have chaired or co-chaired clinical trials testing novel immunotherapeutic strategies for patients with Hodgkin lymphoma and precision medicine approaches for children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). My laboratory and translational research focuses on improving the quality of life for cancer patients and survivors by reducing the long term, deleterious impact of cancer therapy on organ function. By better understanding how cancer treatment causes persistent alterations in normal organ function, we hope to develop strategies to protect against these side effects of curative cancer therapy.
