Care Philosophy

I am dedicated to providing the same level of care to my patients as I would to my own family and loved ones. A lung cancer diagnosis can be an incredibly challenging experience, and I consider it a privilege to support my patients in their journey to overcome this disease. My approach centers around empowering patients by equipping them with the knowledge and resources necessary to make informed decisions about their health.

Research Interests

Dr. Abu Rous conducts research on lung cancer, specializing in developing biomarkers to guide treatment decisions. Biomarkers are tests done on tissue or blood to help tailor cancer treatments. He secured funding from the ASCO Conquer Cancer Foundation in 2023 for his work on squamous cell carcinoma biomarkers.

Additionally, he designs and leads clinical trials for lung cancer treatment, exploring innovative combinations such as immunotherapy, targeted therapies, and antibody-drug conjugates.
