Make an Appointment
I am a medical oncologist who specializes in treating breast cancer and an expert in hormone-based therapeutics, endocrine resistance and experimental therapeutics.
My research focuses on investigating the biology of breast tumors at a molecular level to identify characteristics of tumors that are resistant to hormone-based therapeutics, such as tamoxifen, and on why a third of patients do not respond to this therapy. With this information, researchers can develop alternative therapies to treat hormone-resistant tumors.
In collaboration with a group of interdisciplinary experts from the Translational Therapeutics Research Program, my colleagues and I have published several studies about designing new treatments for these types of breast tumors.
In addition to treating patients, I serve as medical director of the OSUCCC – James Clinical Trials for Solid Tumors Program and director of the Medical Oncology Fellowship Program in Breast Cancer for The Ohio State University College of Medicine. I also serve on the Clinical Scientific Review Committee for the College of Medicine.
