I am a nuclear medicine physician with expertise in molecular imaging and targeted radionuclide therapy — particularly in the use of positron emission tomography (PET) in oncology. In addition to my role as Chief of the Molecular Imaging and Therapy Service, I also serve as Director of the Laurent and Alberta Gerschel Positron Emission Tomography Center at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
As a translational researcher and designer of clinical studies, I have focused on monitoring how tumors respond to therapy and developing radiotracers for targeted imaging and therapy. I am the author or co-author of more than 100 peer-reviewed publications that have appeared in such prestigious journals as Journal of Clinical Oncology and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and have served on the editorial boards of several scientific journals. I also serve as a mentor for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and physician-scientists.
