Research Description

Dr. Grever has over 30 years of experience in experimental chemotherapy and drug development for patients with CLL and other hematologic malignancies. Dr. Grever performed the initial phase I studies on purine nucleoside analogs in patients with hematologic malignancies, and conducted one of the initial phase II studies of fludarabine in patients with CLL. Together with Dr. Byrd, Dr. Grever was among the first to investigate the potential both of histone deacetylase inhibitors (depsipeptide) and cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors (flavopiridol) in CLL, and oversaw both laboratory and Phase I clinical studies of both these agents.
