Dedicated to novel approaches to cancer treatment

 Since the formation of Encyt as a dedicated research organization in  early 2014, a highly qualified team of scientists and technologists has  been assembled at our new state-of-the-art research facility in Nova  Scotia, Canada 


 Research scientist and Board Certified Medical Oncologist, Dr  Harless received his PhD in Biological Sciences from the University of  Texas in Austin before earning his medical degree from the University of  Texas in Galvaston. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine at  the University of Illinois where he also taught in the Department of  Pathology and Internal Medicine. Dr Harless completed a fellowship in  Hematology and Oncology at West Virginia and went on to conduct his  research and to work as a Hematologist and Oncologist at Vidalia  Regional Cancer Center in Vidalia, Georgia, then later at the Tunnell  Cancer Center at the Beebe Medical Center in Maryland. Most recently, Dr  Harless has continued his research and medical practice at the Cape  Breton Regional Hospital in Nova Scotia where he previously served as  Medical Director of the cancer center. Dr Harless has concentrated his  research on discovering how the wound healing pathway triggered after  cancer treatments may facilitate the growth and metastasis of surviving  cancer cells. On the basis of his research discoveries, Dr Harless has  filed for two provisional patents: One on targeting cancer cells rapidly  after surgery by disrupting specific cytokine networks, and a second  patent on a molecular test that can predict which cancer patients still  harbour micrometastatic disease after cancer surgery.
