James Duncan, PhD

Associate Professor, Cancer Biology at the Fox Chase Cancer Center


Dr. James S. Duncan is an Associate Professor of Cancer Biology at the Fox Chase Cancer Center. He received his PhD from the University of Western Ontario, then performed his postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of North Carolina. There he developed a proteomics strategy that provides a systems biology platform to profile global kinome activity in any cell line or tumor biopsy.
Dr. Duncan’s laboratory at Fox Chase applies similar proteomics approaches to explore drug resistance mechanisms in several cancer models. He has received numerous accolades for his work, including research awards from the Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation, the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance, the American Cancer Society, and the NIH.
