I also have broad interests in cancer biology. My research is focused on understanding how proteins called growth or inflammatory factors promote tumor growth and metastatic progression (when tumors spread to other sites in the body). Specifically, I study how these factors mediate the cross-talk between tumor cells and cells comprising the “tumor micro-environment.” We hypothesize that it is the tumor’s “milieu” or setting that determines the aggressiveness of cancers.

We are developing therapies targeted to these inflammatory pathways, which we believe will alter the behavior of cancers, making them sensitive to chemotherapies and hormonal therapies, and incapable of metastasizing. Our preclinical research is demonstrating that these approaches are applicable not only to breast cancer but to a number of other cancers including prostate, lung, ovarian, liver, and colorectal cancers.

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.

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