Dr. Madan's clinical research is focused on immune stimulating therapies and prostate cancer. Specifically, Dr. Madan’s clinical trials are designed to develop a better understanding of how immune stimulating therapies can improve clinical outcomes and be combined with other therapies. Currently, Dr. Madan is investigating the potential of immunocytokines in prostate cancer.

In addition, Dr. Madan is also evaluating treatments in patients with early recurrence of prostate cancer after definitive surgery or radiation (e.g. biochemical recurrence).  These clinical trials include interventions such as immunotherapy, radiopharmaceuticals, and anti- androgens, but spare the use of testosterone lowering therapy (i.e. androgen deprivation therapy). Dr. Madan is also the program director of CCR's Physician-Scientist Early Investigator Program.
