About Me

As a biologist who specializes in molecular and cellular biology, I apply my expertise and knowledge to ensure timely and accurate high-throughput detection of genetic aberrations in cancer tissue.

Plus and Minus IconIcon showing a plus/minus toggle, indicating that the surrounding element can be opened and closed.

My translational research in cancer genomics involves the creation and development of necessary clinical assays derived from molecular biology innovations. These clinical assessments are able to identify the nucleic acid alterations within human cancers that are used by pathologists and oncologists to genetically diagnose cancers (molecular diagnostics), to assist in patient-personalized treatment decisions (therapeutic guidance), and to establish a prognosis (prognostic stratification).

My primary goal is to make a difference in the care and treatment of our cancer patients.

Clinical Trials

As home to one of the world’s top cancer research centers, Memorial Sloan Kettering is typically involved in more than 900 clinical trials at a given time. Currently, clinical trials focused on the conditions I treat are enrolling new patients.

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.
