Clinical Research Division, Fred Hutch
Dr. Heather Cheng focuses on improving the care of patients with prostate and bladder cancers. An expert in prostate cancer genetics, she is studying ways to use genetics to guide the care of prostate cancer patients and their family members who may also be at high risk for the disease. Dr. Cheng leads clinical trials of a variety of new treatments for prostate cancer. She is also developing new tests that could help guide doctors’ choice of treatment for each patient and new blood tests to detect and monitor the progression of prostate cancer.
