Waxman is an authority on nutritional factors that are involved in normal DNA synthesis such as vitamins B12, folic acid and vitamin A. He discovered proteins that are required for the normal use of these vitamins and methods to measure and define their deficiencies. He designed chemotherapeutic agents for the purpose of blocking normal function of these vitamins as anti cancer treatments. His work on understanding abnormal differentiation of blood cells resulting in leukemia has formed the basis of differentiation therapy so successfully used in curing acute promyelocytic leukemia. He continues to apply these concepts to other forms of leukemia and cancer in general.
