Neil Bhowmick, PhD, examines the role of tissue fibroblastic cells in cancer initiation and progression. He studies the role of the tumor microenvironment in prostate cancer progression and mediators of metastatic progression through the use of in vivo model systems. Dr. Bhowmick is currently working on candidate therapeutics to address host-tumor interactions and the development of a biomarker platform to help distinguish indolent and aggressive cancer.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
