The People of Tulane Cancer Center Research
Roy S. Weiner, M.D.
Dr. Weiner's basic research contributions are focused on human hematopoeitic stem cell physiology, cell separation and stem cell cryopreservation. The methods he developed for freezing and thawing human mononuclear cells are used widely today in basic research and in clinical stem cell transplantation. His clinical research contributed to the modern multi-drug treatment of adult leukemia and, more recently, the multimodality therapy of locally advanced breast cancer. He has published more than 140 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals, many invited papers, and has edited several books. He is on the editorial boards of several scholarly journals and has served the AACR, ASCO, and ASH in leadership positions.
