Anatomic Pathology

I am a gastrointestinal pathologist interested in cancer genetics with a strong focus on pancreatic cancer. I am also Director of the David M. Rubenstein Center for Pancreatic Cancer Research. My research interests include understanding the role of somatic mutations in DNA, the “genetic blueprint” of all living cells, in tumorigenesis, metastasis and treatment resistance. I am also the Director of the Last Wish Program. Unlike traditional body donation or organ donation programs, the Medical Donation Program empowers MSK patients at their end of life to donate their cancer tissues to ongoing state of the art clinical research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.


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.
