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 fungoides and sezary syndrome are of speical interest to me and I co-lead, along with Edith Bowers in dermatology, a multidisciplinary cutaneous lymphoma clinic specifically for these patients.

In addition to taking care of patietns in clinic, I also develop and manage clinical trials for patients with lymphoma. I am heavily involved in the development of our UNC based CAR T therapy program. This is an exciting approach, which uses a patient’s own immune system to help fight their lymphoma.
