Dr. Sterman is the Thomas and Suzanne Murphy Professor of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine in the Departments of Medicine and Cardiothoracic Surgery at the New York University School of Medicine, and Director of the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine and Director of the Multidisciplinary Pulmonary Oncology Program at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City. Dr. Sterman’s research interests are related to the treatment of thoracic malignancies, specifically as they apply to the synergy of molecular medicine and novel technologies in Interventional Pulmonology. Over the past 22 years, he has focused on the translation of laboratory discoveries from the bench to the bedside: conducting multiple Phase I human clinical trials of gene therapy and vaccine therapy for lung cancer, mesothelioma, and other pleural malignancies. Dr. Sterman’s current interests include immunophenotyping of lymph nodes in thoracic malignancies, and development of novel intranodal, intratumoral, and intrapleural therapies as adjuncts to systemic checkpoint inhibition in lung cancer and mesothelioma.
