Director, Lymphoma Program; Associate Professor
Division of Hematology/Oncology
Area of interest
I specialize in the treatment of patients with all types of lymphoma, including B and T cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma subtypes and Hodgkin lymphoma. Cutaneous (skin) lymphomas, such as mycosis fungoids and Sezary syndrome, are of special interest to me. I also co-lead with Edith Bowers, MD, in dermatology, a multidisciplinary cutaneous lymphoma clinic.
In addition to taking care of patients in clinic, I develop and manage clinical trials for patients with lymphoma. I am heavily involved in the development of the UNC Lineberger CAR-T therapy program. This is an exciting approach that uses a patient’s own immune system to help fight their lymphoma.
