In my more than 35 years as an infectious disease specialist at Memorial Sloan Kettering, I have helped to diagnose and treat bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic infections in thousands of people with cancer.

Infections are common and often serious in people being treated for cancer because the agents used to target the cancer cells — chemotherapy, bone marrow transplantation, and other therapies — also damage healthy cells and weaken the immune system overall.

In addition to seeing patients, I have been involved in researching new methods of preventing and treating the infectious complications of cancer and the immunocompromised host. I also diagnose and treat naturally occurring disruptions of the immune system such as those that occur with HIV infections.

As Chief and Medical Director of the Employee Health and Wellness Service, I am also responsible for maintaining the health and safety of our nearly 15,000 employees and volunteers by making sure that they are compliant with all regulatory requirements. By doing this, employees ensure their own safety as well as the safety of our patients and visitors.  

I am also a professor of clinical medicine and pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medical College, an active Master of the American College of Physicians (ACP), and a Fellow of both the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and the Society of Healthcare Epidemiology of America. I have served on various committees of both the ACP and IDSA as well.    

In addition, I am past president of the Infectious Disease Society of New York and have served on the Infections in Patients with Cancer Panel of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and as a consultant to the Advisory Committee of the US Food and Drug Administration.
