Dr. Nehal Lakhani is board certified in Internal Medicine, Medical Oncology, and Hematology and the director of clinical research at START Midwest—a global research group that helps cancer patients get access to experimental treatments and therapies. His focus is on new drug development research in oncology, an area of medicine he believes is in need of better treatment options. As the landscape of oncology therapeutics is rapidly changing with advances in many areas, Dr. Lakhani stays abreast of every development.
Cancer drug development is undergoing a transformational change, and more cancer drugs are now being developed than at any time in human history. “I am passionate about finding promising, new treatment alternatives for cancer patients at a time when conventional options seem less attractive,” Dr. Lakhani says. “I believe that there is always room for improvement in the way we do things, and my goal is to bring the very best of new drugs to our patients in West Michigan.”
