I am a medical oncologist. My clinical practice is focused on the care of women with gynecologic cancers including ovarian, endometrial, and cervical cancers. In addition, I have a special interest in treating women with uterine sarcomas. I work as part of a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, radiation oncologists, and pathologists who all specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of gynecologic cancers.
My clinical reseach is focused on developing new treatments for ovarian cancer and uterine sarcomas. I serve as principal investigator on a national research study for women with recurrent uterine sarcoma. I also specialize in early-phase clinical trials (sometimes called Phase I trials). These studies give patients new cancer medicines or new combinations of cancer medicines for the first time. I am working to improve the design of these trials.
