Scientific Interests

Dr. Kapoor's research interests include identifying novel approaches to cancer treatment to decrease morbidity and improve patient outcome. Specifically she is interested in neoadjuvant clinical trials that identify targeted treatments for patients with early stage breast cancer and the application of cryoablation to aid in the treatment of specific breast cancer tumor types. Her secondary goals include identifying strategies that enhance the surgical management of breast cancer treatment amongst her trainees.
