Theodorescu Lab

Personal Statement

I received my urological training in the Surgeon Scientist Training Program in the Department of Surgery at the University of Toronto, where I also obtained a doctorate in molecular and cell biology with Robert Kerbel, PhD. I then completed a clinical fellowship in urologic oncology at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City."

Dan Theodorescu, MD, PhD

For the past 40 years, one of most effective immunotherapies in any malignancy has been the intravesical instillation of bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) for bladder cancer. BCG is an attenuated tuberculoid strain of bacteria that has become a part of the standard of care for patients with bladder cancer.
