Medical Oncology

I am a board-certified medical oncologist specializing in the care of patients with lung cancer.  In addition to serving as Chief of the Thoracic Oncology Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, I co-chair the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Thoracic Committee, and am a member of the National Cancer Institute Thoracic Malignancies Steering Committee.

I direct a broad research program of therapeutic research with the ultimate goal of improving the outcome for patients with lung cancer. My research includes laboratory-based investigations to identify and test novel treatment approaches to lung cancer, early-phase clinical trials to bring these ideas to the clinic, and later-phase studies to establish the efficacy of these new approaches. We are interested in small cell and non-small cell lung cancers. Some of the strategies my group has explored both in the laboratory and in the clinic include turning back on genes silenced in cancer, re-activating cancer cell death pathways, and treating lung cancer with a cancer-specific virus.


Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering work as teams, with specialists from all different areas. This allows us to consider all your needs together, and to give you the best possible care.
