I am a neuro-oncologist with extensive experience in the care of patients with brain tumors and the neurologic complications of cancer. I have led national trials of investigational drugs for primary CNS lymphoma and have conducted numerous trials of brain tumor therapeutics.

I am also Co-Executive Director of the Brain Tumor Center at Memorial Sloan Kettering. The Brain Tumor Center is a virtual interdepartmental center that spans Memorial Hospital and Sloan Kettering Institute to support research in brain tumors and promote its translation into clinical trials.
