Dr. Grunberg's research interests are in developmental chemotherapy and early clinical trials of new anti-cancer agents. His work has spanned early clinical trials of cytotoxics, biologics, antiemetics, and differentiating agents. Present efforts include development of new and more effective treatment strategies for lung cancer, and head and neck cancer. He also continues a major effort in supportive care and symptom management, including pharmacologic interventions, evaluation of patient and healthcare professional perceptions, and pharmacoeconomic analysis.
