I am part of the Melanoma-Sarcoma Oncology Service.  I have an interest in developing clinical trials for patients with melanoma involving immunotherapeutic strategies.  My specific areas of interest include studying the immunologic effects of radiotherapy and characterizing pharmacodynamic biomarkers associated with ipilimumab outcomes.  I plan to continue bridging basic laboratory advances with novel clinical observations to improve the care of our patients.
