Research

Dr. Batist’s research focuses on three themes: 1) suicide gene therapy in cancer, particularly regarding tumor-specific promoter systems and on amplifying the “bystander effect” by modulating gap junctions; 2) Biochemical modulation of cellular detoxification systems, including glutathione and related enzymes. This ranges from potentials in both anticancer research and environmental carcinogenesis; 3) Preclinical studies of a range of novel therapeutics and laboratory support of early phase clinical trials.
