Dr. Kulke is an internationally recognized for his work in the field of neuroendocrine tumors. He has led or co-led both early and late stage clinical trials leading to the development of telotristat ethyl, temozolomide, sunitinib, everolimus and peptide receptor radiotherapy for the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors. His work has additionally included characterization of neuroendocrine tumors at the molecular level, and has resulted in over 200 peer-reviewed publications.
Dr. Kulke received his undergraduate degree in molecular biology from Princeton University magna cum laude, and his medical degree with a thesis honors award from the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine where he also was a Regent’s scholar and received a research training fellowship from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He performed his internship and residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a medical oncology fellowship at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and received a Masters in Medical Science Degree from Harvard Medical School.
Prior to coming to Boston University he was a Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Neuroendocrine Tumor Program at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He has served as principal investigator for NCI cooperative group trials in both neuroendocrine tumors and pancreatic cancer, served as chair of the National Cancer Institute’s Neuroendocrine Tumor Clinical Trial Task Force, chair of the North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society, and chair of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network’s neuroendocrine tumor guidelines committee.
