I am a neuro-oncologist who cares for patients with brain tumors and neurologic complications of cancer. I coordinate a multidisciplinary team of neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists who collaborate to provide the highest quality treatment for patients with gliomas and glioblastomas, primary central nervous system lymphomas (brain and spinal cord), ependymomas, and other types of brain tumors. With the support of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Brain Tumor Center, I also conduct research in an effort to develop innovative, more effective treatments for these diseases. I am currently leading several clinical trials aiming to improve patients’ survival and quality of life, including studies of new targeted therapies as well as treatments targeting tumor blood vessels (angiogenesis) and cancer stem cells.
