Karl E. Haglund, M.D., Ph.D.
Dr. Haglund's laboratory interests focus on understanding the development of sarcomas and improving their response to radiation treatment. Sarcomas are tumors derived from connective tissues, including bone, cartilage, muscle, blood vessels, and fat cells. This type of tumor is a significant problem in children as well as adults. One particular focus of the lab is chordoma -- a tumor that develops along the spine from the coccyx to the skull base.
Clinically, Dr. Haglund is involved in the care of patients with sarcomas, pediatric tumors, thoracic malignancies, head and neck cancers, and hematologic malignancies.
