He has been involved in investigations of several novel agents, and, more importantly, is a leader in biomarker development, evaluation, and clinical utility, including circulating MUC1 and HER2, circulating tumor cells, several tissue-based biomarkers (MUC1, neo-vascularization, HER2, ALDH1), and germline factors associated with drug metabolism and activity. He is the Co-Director of the Breast Oncology Program (BOP) at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center. He directs both the clinical and translational research activities within the BOP, as well as research activities in his own, independently funded laboratory. Dr. Hayes serves as Chair or Co-Chair of the Breast Cancer Translational Medicine Committee of the Southwest Oncology Group, the Correlative Science Committee of the North American Breast Cancer Group, the TransOx Correlative Science Committee of the Early Breast Cancer Trialists’ Collaborative Group, the Consortium on Breast Cancer Pharmacogenomics, and the American Society of Clinical Oncology Tumor Marker Guidelines Committee. He has authored over 250 peer-reviewed papers and other educationally relevant materials. He served as the Chair of the Scientific Program Committee for the 2010 ASCO Annual Meeting, and, in 2007, he was the inaugural recipient of the ASCO Gianni Bonadonna Breast Cancer Award for translational research and mentoring.
