His major areas of interest are management of urological cancers, clinical trials, early drug development and translational medicine. He has set up many clinical trials from early phase to late phase studies during his career. His work on organ preservation in bladder cancer moved all the way from an early Phase I study (Hussain S et al. Annals of Oncology 2001), to a Phase II efficacy study (Hussain S et al.
