James L. Chen, MD, is a sarcoma medical oncologist at the OSUCCC – James, where he also is a member of the Translational Therapeutics Program. Dr. Chen’s research focus is on using computers to better understand complex gene data in cancer. He serves on national committees to find ways to incorporate this data into patient care. His clinical and research work centers on sarcoma

Dr. Chen’s lab is applying a matching algorithm that uses genomic predictors to identify sarcoma patients who are sensitive to different chemotherapies. He is also testing new ways of treating liposarcoma by better understanding how these tumors grow. Additionally, he is deciphering the molecular underpinnings of local metastasis in sarcoma using bioinformatics techniques to identify and test potential therapies.

His work has been published in more than 20 articles that have appeared in publications such as Science Translational Research, Journal of Biomedical Informatics, Clinical Cancer Research, Journal of Surgical Oncology and Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association. He has also has presented to several organizations, including Connective Tissue Oncology Society and European Hematology Association.
