Area of interest

As an academic medical oncologist specializing in gastrointestinal (GI) malignancies, I have developed a career focused on clinical trials that are translationally based and scientifically mindful. This aspiration has been fostered by both a dedication to practicing excellent clinical medicine combined with my work in the laboratory as an oncology fellow. With the resources and mentorship afforded to me during my time as junior faculty member, I have acquired a skill set that makes me well suited for bridging the gap between scientists and clinicians in the multi-disciplinary setting. I currently serve as principal investigator on clinical trials both in the GI and phase I arena with an emphasis on incorporating correlative endpoints.
