He completed research and clinical fellowships at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in 1997 and 2001-2003 before joining the Attending staff there until 2005. He received the Charles H. Revson Fellowship for Biomedical Research for the study of therapeutic glioma vaccines, a new approach to cancer that uses the body s own immune system to fight disease.
