Research Interests

Dr. Leila Tchelebi’s research interests have an emphasis on cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. She has co-authored a textbook chapter on GI cancers and written a number of review papers on the role of radiation therapy in upper GI cancers. Her ongoing research is aimed at improving outcomes for patients with pancreatic cancer, for which efforts are needed to improve patient outcomes. She is optimistic that ongoing efforts will one day improve cure rates for this and other GI cancers.
