Dr. Forde treats patients with lung cancer, mesothelioma and other thoracic cancers. He completed training in internal medicine and oncology in Ireland prior to undertaking a further fellowship at Johns Hopkins and subsequently becoming a medical oncology faculty member in the Lung Cancer Program. His research focus is in immunotherapy and, in particular, agents called anti-PD-1 antibodies which stimulate the immune system to treat cancer. These agents have shown promise in patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer and Dr. Forde has developed a clinical trial of anti-PD-1 for earlier stage lung cancer patients. He is active clinically, treating many patients with thoracic cancers while maintaining an active research portfolio that aims to find new and better treatments for patients dealing with cancer. more
