Biography

My major research interest is investigating the basic cellular and molecular mechanisms of how tumors form and respond to treatment. By studying how these things work, I hope to find specific molecules that are targets for new cancer treatments. I see patients with gastrointestinal (digestive system) cancers and participate in clinical trials for a variety of gastrointestinal cancers.
