Biography :

Dr. Rizvi is the director of thoracic oncology and director of immunotherapeutics for the division of Hematology and Oncology at Columbia University Medical Center. He also holds the Price Chair in Clinical Translational Research.

He is an internationally recognized leader in the treatment of lung cancer and immunotherapy drug development. Prior to joining Columbia University Medical Center, his clinical research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer played a significant role in the FDA approval path of a new class of immunotherapies, called immune checkpoint inhibitors, for melanoma and lung cancer.

His research focus is studying mechanisms of sensitivity and resistance to immunotherapy. Through genetic testing of tumors, he has been able to improve the understanding of why immune checkpoint inhibitors work in certain patients. This work has been partially supported by Stand Up To Cancer -- Cancer Research Institute Immunology funding.
