For these cancers, Dr. Feun is investigating novel targeted therapies, both to increase efficacy and decrease toxicity compared to conventional treatment.

For liver cancers, he is also interested in regional therapies (including intrahepatic artery chemotherapy or radioactive spheres, chemoembolization) that may improve the likelihood of successful surgery or liver transplantation afterwards.
