About Me

I am a medical oncologist with clinical expertise in caring for adults undergoing stem cell transplantation for hematologic malignancies. My laboratory research is focused on the development of immunotherapy for cancer, with a specific interest in cellular therapies, including cancer vaccines. A major goal of my research is to thoroughly characterize the immune profiles of people with cancer to inform the rational development of immunotherapeutic interventions for cancer.

Clinical Trials

Research is integral to our mission at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and clinical trials help us discover better forms of patient care and treatment. For you, this could mean access to a new therapy or therapy combination. Click to see a list of the trials I’m currently leading.

Insurance

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. Medicare and New York State Medicaid also provide benefits for care at MSK.
