Research Interests

Administration of tumor-specific frequencies by means of a spoon-shaped antenna has led to tumor shrinkage and long-term responses in patients with breast cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. I investigate the mechanism of action for tumor-specific amplitude-modulated radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (AM RF EMF) which are used as a novel treatment for cancer (i.e. hepatocellular carcinoma, breast cancer, & glioblastoma).
