I am a physician-scientist with 25 years of clinical expertise caring for people with breast cancer. I work as part of a team of breast cancer specialists who see patients in New York City and in Monmouth, New Jersey.

One of my primary objectives is to educate my patients and support them so they can make informed decisions about their care. I take the time to explain the clinical research leading to our treatment recommendations. For example, when patients first meet with me, they often ask how they can improve their tolerance and response to treatment. We discuss the evidence supporting the positive role of exercise and maintaining a normal body mass index (BMI). It’s important for patients to have control over their care and well-being, and these interventions may result in improved outcomes.

I became interested in oncology because of the exciting advances happening in the field. I wanted to study how cancers develop, metastasize (spread), and become resistant to treatment. As a cancer biologist, I’m proud to say that my research is now contributing to that body of work.

I have a particular interest in an aggressive type of breast cancer called inflammatory breast cancer (IBC). This type is known for its resistance to treatment and its capacity to metastasize. Learning why this cancer is so virulent is a focus of our research.

In collaboration with my colleagues in surgery (Audree Tadros) and in radiation oncology (Amy Xu), I am part of a multidisciplinary IBC program aimed at determining the best treatments and clinical trials for our patients. Our research centers on understanding why these cancers can be resistant to treatments, so we can find more effective therapies.

In addition, my colleagues and I have investigated how cancer cells and the tissues around them interact with each other. We’ve learned certain factors can affect metastasis. Our research is currently focused on microscopic structures called exosomes that circulate in the blood and travel to distant sites in the body where they can set the stage for cancer cells to take root and thrive. Conversely, there is growing data demonstrating that exosomes from a variety of normal cells may restrain the development of cancer.

We seek to understand how these exosomes may predict response to treatment, as well as how they can either promote or prevent cancer growth, resistance to targeted therapies, and metastasis — which is responsible for 90% of all deaths from solid tumors.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my two adult daughters. I relax by enjoying the colorful beauty of flowers such as tulips, lilacs, and ranunculus, and listening to classical music by Bach or Schubert. I also lead an active lifestyle, whether I’m home playing with my border collie, Milo, or outdoors hiking and skiing. I particularly enjoy hiking in the Canadian Rockies and skiing at Alta in Utah.
