Dr. Nagourney's focus on the laboratory study of cancer cell death events (apoptosis) has provided a robust method for the prediction of patient's response and survival in the clinical setting. The initial application of this process was in the study of existing cytotoxic drugs and radiation effects on human cancer cells. As clinical correlations became increasingly strong, the laboratory tests are now also applied to the study of novel drugs and combinations.
