During my training as a physician-scientist, I benefited greatly from exposure to the exciting discoveries and breakthroughs that emerged in the cancer research field over the past decade. It is my goal to continue these efforts in the laboratory, specifically conducting research on the metabolism of blood cancer cells to develop new and better treatments for our patients. Our ambition is that these new approaches can quickly advance to clinical trials here at MSK.
A diagnosis of leukemia or the start of a new treatment can be a very challenging time for a patient and their family. When in the hospital, I strive to make sure that our treatment team — a dedicated group of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and support staff — is providing the best care possible. To me, that means not only delivering the highest quality medical treatment, but also removing some of the uncertainty from the process. I aim to review the rationales, logistics, and expectations for our therapies with each patient I meet. My hope is that the more effectively we communicate, the better experience our patients will have.

Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering work as teams, with specialists from all different areas. This allows us to consider all your needs together, and to give you the best possible care.
Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.
MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.
