Research/Academic Interests

Dr. Rodler’s research interests are in triple negative breast cancer treatment. She specializes in breast cancer clinical care and research. Her area of research interest in is hormone receptor negative, HER2/neu negative breast cancer ("Triple negative breast cancer").

She is the principal investigator for a phase I clinical trial in patients with metastatic triple negative breast cancer which is exploring the efficacy of using a chemotherapy drug combination that causes DNA damage, and a new drug called a “PARP inhibitor” which acts as a double hit to these tumor cells. Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors inhibit DNA repair in cancer cells that have pre-existing DNA repair defects, but not normal cells.
