About James R. Heath's Work

I am interested in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. This includes diagnostic technologies designed to measure ~50 proteins from a fingerprick of blood, all within a time window that is shorter than the clotting or protease degradation kinetics. A second project includes the use of game theory to begin decoding the conversation between the immune system and cancer – a conversation that can both lead to a cure for the cancer and promote the hallmarks of cancer.
