My primary area of interest is pediatric neuro-oncology, but I also take care of children with other cancers and blood diseases. I am actively involved in clinical trials for all pediatric cancers.
Associate Professor, Department of Pediatrics
I am a translational researcher and clinical trialist. My primary research interests are in better elucidating the complex mechanisms of oncogenesis, invasion, and immune escape in low- and high-grade pediatric brain tumors, which together are now the leading cause of cancer-related death in children. My ultimate goal is to develop new therapeutic strategies for pediatric brain tumors that are more effective and less toxic.
