Make an Appointment
I am a head and neck medical oncologist and molecular epidemiologist. My laboratory is focused on improving methods for prevention and treatment of head and neck cancers. At The Ohio State University, I am a professor of internal medicine and the Jeg Coughlin Chair of Cancer Research.
To date, my laboratory has identified human papillomavirus to be a cause of head and neck cancer, and we are now focused on how we can improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of these cancers.
In the clinic, we tailor our therapy to the individual patient to minimize the risk of therapy while trying to achieve the best possible outcomes. We have numerous clinical trials designed to investigate novel therapies, with a goal toward improving cure rates while reducing the toxicity of therapy.
