Douglas McNeel, MD PhD is Professor of Medicine at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He is a genitourinary medical oncologist with a laboratory and clinical research program that has focused on prostate cancer immunology for over 15 years. The long-term goal of these efforts is to develop effective anti-tumor vaccines as treatments for prostate cancer. His current research efforts seek to identify immunologically recognized proteins of the prostate, characterize these as tumor target antigens, evaluate anti-tumor genetic vaccines targeting these antigens in appropriate pre-clinical models, specifically evaluating plasmid DNA vaccines encoding these antigens, and translate these findings to early phase human clinical trials.
