I am a medical oncologist who specializes in research in and treatment of patients with genitourinary malignancies, including bladder, prostate, kidney, and testis cancers. I also have a special interest in understanding the genetic basis for bladder cancer and am a member of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Bladder Cancer Oncogenome Project, a multidisciplinary effort to discover the key genetic abnormailities that drive this disease. The discovery and understanding of these genetic abnormalities hold the promise of novel treatments for patients with bladder cancer.
