About

About

I am an experienced medical oncologist and researcher who focus on developing novel therapies for cancers. I conduct early phase 1 clinical trials with immunotherapy, chemotherapy or targeted therapies to treat patients with all tumor types.

I am a specialist in head and neck cancers, salivary gland tumors and virally associated cancers, which are tumors caused by HPV, EBV, KSHV and HIV. I wrote, conducted and published trials to treat such cancers, including trials for adenoid cystic cancer (ACC) and HIV related malignancies and diseases, such as Kaposi sarcoma (KS) and multicentric Castleman disease (MCD). I published several articles in medical journals, received grants and awards in oncology.

I am passionate about teaching patients about clinical trial opportunities and strive to help them understand and choose the best possible therapy available.
