Procedures

Our doctors provide a wide range of services. The following list represents some, but not all, of the procedures offered by this physician.

Research

Dr. Weber conducts translational research at the UW Carbone Cancer Center, evaluating novel tumor selective agents which may be promising for imaging and/or treating tumors. She also conducts clinical research evaluating prognosticators of outcome in patients with liver, bile duct and liver tumors and investigates new imaging agents in pancreas and liver cancers. In addition, her lab is evaluating ways to target anti-cancer medications more specifically to the cancer cell by targeting the cellular mechanism of the cancer.
