My research focuses on finding and targeting the molecular changes that drive a person’s tumor. This allows us to more precisely tailor treatments to their disease. By developing and running early-phase clinical trials, I hope to bring new and more effective therapies to people with all types of cancer.

I understand that being diagnosed with cancer is scary, and navigating treatment can be overwhelming. I help guide my patients through the process so that they feel supported and confident in their care. Together, we create a personalized treatment plan based on what is important to them. I work with my colleagues in surgery, radiation oncology, supportive care, pathology, and radiology to find the best treatment approach for each person.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
