While treating patients is Dr. Hausner’s main focus, he is also involved in research, an important part of working at a teaching university. With more than 100 clinical trials ongoing at the Greenebaum Cancer Center, Dr. Hausner has the opportunity to pursue new modes of inquiry about cancer in pursuit of a cure. This can also be a benefit to patients at Greenebaum, who have access not only to standard methods of treatment like chemotherapy and surgery, but also to experimental drugs and brand new treatment options.

Because the University of Maryland is among the top 25 rated cancer centers in the United States, Dr. Hausner’s office is often a beacon of hope for patients who have been unsuccessful in their treatments elsewhere. An experienced staff allows Dr. Hausner’s office to treat these patients successfully.

In his laboratory, Dr. Hausner studies intercellular communications and the process by which mesothelioma cells spread — a hugely important task if researchers hope to understand and eventually eradicate the disease. And in addition to his work at the University of Maryland, Dr. Hausner also serves as Chief of Hemotology and Oncology at the Baltimore VA Medical Center.
