Maya Khalil, M.D.

Maya Khalil, M.D.

Maya Khalil, M.D., is an assistant professor of Medicine in the Division of Hematology & Oncology and an associate scientist in the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center. She comes to UAB from Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, where she developed expertise in clinical trial design, drug development and patient care. Her research was focused on the tumor immune microenvironment in mutation-driven non-small cell lung cancer. She continues to focus on the genomic understanding of thoracic malignancies and developing novel agents that can manipulate the immune microenvironment to overcome resistance to therapies.

Satoru Osuka, M.D., Ph.D.

Satoru Osuka, M.D., Ph.D.

Satoru Osuka, M.D., Ph.D., is an assistant professor of Neurosurgery and an associate scientist in the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center. He comes to UAB from Emory University. His research seeks to understand the cellular and molecular biology of therapeutic resistance in brain tumors, including how glioblastoma that recur after treatment change at the molecular level, making them resistant to further chemotherapies and radiotherapies. The purposes of his research are to identify the mechanisms that drive resistance and to learn how to target them.
