    Research

    Preclinical drug development and drug evaluation, clinical trials in genitourinary malignancies (prostate, bladder, kidney, and testis cancer)

    Dr. Sweeney has focused his academic career on the management of genitourinary malignancies, including prostate, bladder, testis, and renal cell cancer. His research interest has been primarily focused on drug development. This has included (i) design and conduct of phase I trials of new agents or new combinations that assess the safety and distribution of the drug in the body as well as the anti-cancer activity of the therapy; (ii) assessment of genetic variants and blood markers to try and define signatures that identify patients who are destined to benefit from a therapy; (iii) design and conduct of phase 2 and 3 clinical trials with a focus on bladder and prostate cancer and (iv) drug discovery and evaluation in the laboratory to guide clinical trial design.
