Biography

Dr. Cassaday’s research interests and clinical practice are almost exclusively devoted to adults with ALL.  He is the Principal Investigator on investigator-initiated and industry-sponsored clinical trials in adult ALL.  He has particular interests in developing novel chemotherapy strategies for high-risk populations (including older adults and those with relapsed/refractory disease) as well as the use of measurable residual disease (MRD) as a risk-stratification tool in both standard and investigational therapies.
