Area of Interest

I am a gastrointestinal medical oncologist and clinical researcher. My primary academic focus is on improving the quality of cancer care delivery. I approach this goal through health services research and through leading value and quality initiatives at the UNC Health System. I serve as the Clinic Medical Director for outpatient cancer services at the North Carolina Cancer Hospital, working closely with hospital administration to improve the quality of care we deliver from the patient and provider perspective.

I am also a clinical trialist and have served as the principal investigator on a number of industry, cooperative and investigator initiated clinical trials. I am an active member the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology, serving on multiple Alliance committees (GI Committee and the Alliance-ACS Cancer Care Delivery Research Committee), the GI Colon Cancer Trials Working Group, and as the Alliance Representative to the Colon Task Force of the NCI GI Steering Committee. In addition to mentoring multiple trainees and junior faculty, I am the Program Director of our Paul Calabresi K12 institutional career development award.
