Research Focus Dr. Maithel has a variety of research interests. He has worked with clinical investigation and outcomes analysis of patients treated for tumors of the liver, biliary tract, and pancreas and studying molecular biomarkers as predictors of outcome and chemotherapeutic response for tumors of the liver, biliary tract, and pancreas (including colorectal liver metastases and pancreas cancer). Dr. Maithel is also the Principal Investigator on a novel protocol testing the benefit of giving two chemotherapy drugs instead of one after complete resection of pancreatic cancer and is a member of two multi-institutional research consortiums that study tumors of the liver, biliary tract, and pancreas. Other areas of research interest include clinical investigation and outcomes analysis of hepatopancreatobiliary tumors. Previous research projects include determining predictors of pancreatic tumor resectability, assessing the clinical and economic affects of pancreatic fistulas, and examining the utility of staging laparoscopy. He also has initiated a translational research program to investigate molecular predictors of outcome and chemotherapeutic response, particularly for colorectal cancer liver metastases, liver cancer, and pancreatic cancer.
Education Before joining Emory, Dr. Maithel was at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York where he completed a Fellowship in both Surgical Oncology and Hepatopancreatobiliary Surgery.
