About Me

I am a physician-scientist and a board-certified medical oncologist who works closely with our multidisciplinary team caring for patients with soft tissue and bone sarcomas, and melanomas.  My research focus is on the pathogenesis and treatment of sarcomas. I am involved in a multidisciplinary effort with oncologists, pathologist, and surgeons to analyze tumor tissues and to develop clinical trials tailored to personalized therapy. My laboratory in the Human Oncology and Pathogenesis Program (HOPP) at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center focuses on the study of critical genetic and epigenetic “drivers” and development of novel biomarkers and therapeutics in sarcomas, in particular GIST and MPNST,  using cell, tissue and mouse models.
