Bio-X Affiliated Faculty

Dr. Knox's current research focuses are in:

  • Radioimmunotherapy (RIT) and Systemically Targeted Radiation Therapy
  • Low Dose Rate Effects
  • Radioprotective Agents, Growth Factors/Receptors
  • Oncogenes, Apoptosis & Radiosensitivity
  • Apoptosis and Signal Transduction Pathways
  • Effects of Radiation on the Immune Response
  • Biological Response Modifiers and Novel Targeted Radiosensitizers
  • Non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas
  • Mycosis Fungoides
  • Breast and Prostate Cancer
  • Radiation as a component of Tumor Vaccine Strategies

Dr. Knox's laboratory and clinical research are focused on the use of local tumor radiation therapy in combination with targeted immunotherapies as in situ tumor vaccines, and the study of novel radiosensitizers, radioprotectors and biological response modifiers for use with radiation. The work is translational with several clinical trials resulting from discoveries in her laboratory. She is also the Faculty Director of the Protocol Review and Monitoring System for the Stanford Cancer Institute and an Academic Advising Dean at the School of Medicine.
