Kevin P. Raisch, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor


Research Interests:

"I am interested in identifying novel compounds as radiosensitizng agents for the treatment of cancers. Many of these compounds are isolated from plants, marine specimens or amphibians. I screen the natural products or analogs of these products for cytotoxicity and radiosensitization. Also, I am interested in using antibodies and single-chain antibodies to target chemotherapy agents directly to the tumor cells."
