I am a medical oncologist/hematologist who is a member of a close-knit team that provides compassionate, multidisciplinary care to patients with lymphoma. I have clinical expertise in Hodgkin Lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), and my research interests focus on finding new treatments for patients with these diseases. To accomplish this goal, I serve as the principal investigator on several clinical trials that evaluate promising new treatments from laboratories around the world. I have helped develop agents now approved to treat lymphoma and CLL, including bortezomib and ibrutinib. Many of my trials explore innovative ways to combine existing drugs with newer treatments in order to find novel ways to maximize responses while minimizing side effects in patients with lymphoma. I am also a member of the Developmental Therapeutics Group, a team of medical oncologists dedicated to providing access to the newest phase I agents for patients with all types of cancer throughout the Memorial Sloan Kettering.
