I am a pediatric oncologist who specializes in the treatment of children and young adults with leukemia, lymphoma, and tumors involving the kidney (such as Wilms’ tumor). Depending on the type of cancer, treatment can take months to years to complete. We treat these cancers with combinations of drugs that are tailored to each patient’s individual situation.

My clinical research involves the use of novel agents and combination therapies for relapsed and refractory leukemia. We participate in Children’s Oncology Group studies as well as early-stage clinical trials of promising new agents in multicenter studies coordinated by consortia such as POETIC (Pediatric Oncology Experimental Therapeutics Investigator Consortium) and TACL (Therapeutic Advances in Childhood Leukemia & Lymphoma).

My laboratory work focuses on the discovery and analysis of unique genetic characteristics of different childhood cancers to identify important signaling pathways and novel targets for effective therapy. I also screen new drugs and compounds against childhood cancer cells, with the potential to create new agents to improve treatments and outcomes.

At Memorial Sloan Kettering, patients and their families benefit from the years of expertise shared by our clinicians and researchers and the high volume of patients we see. I work as part of a dedicated multidisciplinary team that includes surgeons, radiologists, radiation oncologists, nurses, psychiatrists, social workers, and others committed to providing the best possible care for every child.
