David Carbone, MD, PhD, is a professor in the Division of Medical Oncology at The Ohio State University and co-leader of the Translational Therapeutics Program at the OSUCCC – James, where he also directs the Thoracic Oncology Center. In addition, he holds the Barbara J. Bonner Chair in Lung Cancer Research.

Dr. Carbone is an expert in the molecular genetics of lung tumors and in developing treatments that target the genetic markers and tumor cells of each patient’s biologically unique cancer.

His research interests, grant support and publications have been focused on lung cancer, specifically on proteomic and expression array signature development, genetics, immunotherapy and tumor-associated immunosuppression mechanisms. Some of his recent research directions include development of molecular biomarkers to guide patient management and therapy, and molecular profiling of lung cancers and pre-neoplasias to guide the development of therapeutics, especially using mass spectrometry-based proteomics.

Dr. Carbone has authored or co-authored more than 200 peer-reviewed articles in such prestigious journals as Nature Communications, Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, Journal of Thoracic Oncology, Journal for Immunotherapy of Cancer and Journal of Clinical Oncology.

He also has served on several National Cancer Institute (NCI) grant review panels and has had continuous NCI grant funding since early in his career. In addition, he has served on the Board of Scientific Counselors for the NCI and is past president of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer.
