Research

Dr. Campian's research focus is immunotherapy and new drug development in high grade gliomas. Dr. Campian and her colleagues have demonstrated that treatment-related lymphopenia is common, severe and long lasting in various solid tumors including glioblastoma, pancreatic cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, head and neck squamous carcinoma, rectal cancer, etc. More importantly, this treatment-related lymphopenia is associated with inferior survival and patients died from tumor progression not opportunistic infections. Thus, her research has been focused on how to correct treatment-related lymphopenia in patients with malignant brain tumors, with an ultimate goal to improve overall survival in this deadly disease. She is currently the study chair for a multi-center study to evaluate whether interleukin-7 can increase CD4+ cell counts and correct treatment-related lymphopenia in patients with high grade gliomas who require standard chemoradiation.
