SIDNEY K. SIMON DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR OF ONCOLOGY RESEARCH
Clinically, I am interested in the treatment of lung and breast cancers, as well as in methods to understand (and prevent) radiation-associated normal tissue injury. I am also very interested in patient safety, and am passionate about the application of industrial engineering principles to our clinical practices in order to make our processes more reliable, safe. I am active locally and nationally in efforts to address these issues.
