A. Biography:

Dr. Streeter has been treating cancer patients with hyperthermia since 1990 when he joined the radiation oncology faculty at the USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center. He was fortunate to be trained by two faculty members who earned their PhDs in hyperthermia research; physician/researcher Dr. Michael D. Sapozink and medical physicist Dr. Mel Astrahan, who received his PhD in hyperthermia from UCLA while working with the pioneering surgical oncologist Dr. Kristian Storm (author of the classic textbook Hyperthermia in Cancer Therapy). Dr. Streeter also worked with Dr. Siliva C. Formenti when she was at USC/Norris Cancer Center, who went on to chair first the department of radiation oncology at NYU-Langone Medical Center, and who is currently professor and chair at Weill Cornell Medical College where she has continued her research in hyperthermia. Dr. Streeter and Dr. Formenti remain close colleagues. Dr. Formenti was one of the first physician/researchers to explore using hyperthermia with chemotherapy for recurrent ovarian cancer in the abdomen/pelvis and was a co-author with Dr. Streeter. Dr. Streeter was senior author on the article demonstrating the effectiveness of hyperthermia and carboplatin in unresectable and recurrent head and neck tumors published in the journal Radiology. (Radiology has been published regularly since 1923 by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), and has long been recognized as the authoritative reference for the most current, clinically relevant and highest quality research in the field of radiology.)

Dr. Streeter’s latest research is in the study of metastatic ovarian cancer in the abdomen or pelvis, collaborating with the department of radiation oncology at UCLA with Dr. Phil Beron, resulting in an abstract presented at the 2016 International Congress of Hyperthermic Oncology (ICHO) in New Orleans. This study combines deep ultrasound-generated hyperthermia with one of the most sophisticated radiation machines providing real-time tumor location during treatment using MRI-guidance, resulting in complete tumor response in many patients treated over the last two years.

Understanding that many cancers have genetic mutations (errors in their DNA) that increasingly can be exploited with more targeted chemotherapies and immunotherapies including non-toxic hyperthermia, Dr. Streeter has developed an expertise in precision medicine, which is the ability to deliver the right therapy at the right time. Currently, he is the lead author on a chapter with Dr. Phil Beron, radiation oncologist at UCLA, and Prashant Natarajan Iyer, product director of healthcare solutions at Oracle Corporation entitled, “Precision Medicine: Genomic Profile to Individualize Therapy” to be published in Otolaryngology Clinics of North America in its August 2017 edition on Multidisciplinary Approach to Head and Neck Cancer.

Dr. Streeter has always embraced new technology. He was one of the first resident-physicians to own a portable computer in Washington, D.C. which he took with him to collect data on radiation therapy of cervical cancer in Haiti in 1984, later published in the International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology and Physics. After completing his residency at Howard University Hospital, he spent four years at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles where he taught the first residency class in radiation oncology before joining the faculty of the Keck School of Medicine at USC in 1990 where he was residency program director for two separate programs: chief of service at LAC+USC Medical Center, and chief of service at USC/Norris. He also organized the first Los Angeles regional mock oral boards. While at USC he was either principal investigator or investigator for over 6 million dollars in grant funding over 18 years, including grants improving access to care to the underserved. One of these multimillion dollar grants involved participation with Dr. Michael Steinberg, now chair of the department of UCLA Radiation Oncology, in a National Cancer Institute Radiation Research grant with USC and Daniel Freeman Hospital in Inglewood, California, that brought clinical trials to urban African-Americans and Latinos for the first time in a community setting. That research grant included a sponsored study to use partial breast irradiation therapy for breast ductal carcinoma in-situ (DCIS) after lumpectomy where Dr. Streeter was the principal investigator and included institutions such as M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia and Swedish Hospital in Seattle along with many other institutions. TIME magazine in 2007 recognized it as one of the five most important advances in breast cancer that year.

In 2008, Dr. Streeter was recruited to revive the radiation oncology program at Howard University Hospital with new programs. While at Howard, Dr. Streeter was part of a group of cancer specialists that specialized in genitourinary cancers – kidney, bladder, prostate and testicular cancers from Johns Hopkins, MedStar Georgetown University, George Washington University, Howard University laboratory researchers, the University of Maryland, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the National Institute of Health and Inova Alexandria Virginia Health Systems along with some private practitioners known at GUMDROP (for genitourinary multidisciplinary D.C. regional oncology project) where the most promising clinical trials from each participating institution was discussed monthly over a pot luck dinner at a private home in Chevy Chase, MD. What made this group so unique, was that the participating physicians would inform patients where to go for the best available clinical trial, assisting the patient to navigate the system to gain entry into that institution. This only happened because the monthly potluck gave time for all the institution researchers to get acquainted by “breaking bread together”, talking in a relaxed atmosphere and developing trust. Dr. William Dahut, clinical director of the National Cancer Institute’s cancer research center explained the process in a Washington Post article featuring the group (May 21, 2012, by Lena H Sun). In addition to leading the department of radiation oncology at Howard, Dr. Streeter was active in cancer community outreach programs including the Howard University Cancer Center screening program and was a board member of the DC Cancer Consortium.

In 2012 Dr. Streeter returned to California to serve as the Medical Director of a 60 million dollar new cancer center at the San Joaquin Community Hospital in Bakersfield, California, which became part of the UC Davis Cancer Care Network along with four other facilities in the California Central Valley.

Missing the proximity to a major medical center and the opportunity to teach residents, mentor students and participate in original research, Dr. Streeter came to Santa Monica to become the medical director of The Center for Thermal Oncology where he collaborates on the treatment of cancer patients with the UCLA department of radiation oncology, the head and neck multidisciplinary conference at UCLA and attend weekly chart rounds in the UCLA radiation oncology department.

The Center for Thermal Oncology is located next to St John’s Providence Medical Center and the John Wayne Cancer Institute, and participates in the care of patients from that esteemed facility as well.

Early in his medical career, Dr. Streeter served on the board of the Los Angeles chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the Episcopal Church chair to fight apartheid in South Africa and on the founding board of the first AIDS Center in the San Gabriel Valley (then called the All Saints AIDS Center). In addition to his teaching, he is a volunteer mentor to a pre-med student at USC.
