About

About

I am a medical oncologist, a doctor that gives chemotherapy and related treatments that impact the whole body. I treat a family of cancers called sarcomas, which in all represent less than 1% of all cancer, yet encompass more than 70 different types of cancer. Sarcomas are tumors of connective tissues, such as like muscle, fat, bone and blood vessels. We are also trying to find new treatments for sarcomas and related tumors such as desmoid tumors by conducting clinical trials of new medicines. In concert with colleagues at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, I also participate in translational research regarding the biology and treatment of cancer.
