A physician, or doctor, is extensively trained to diagnose and treat complex medical problems. Often, physicians focus their practice on certain disease categories, treatment methods or patient types. Physicians can diagnose and treat illness, prescribe medication, offer medical consultation and advice, perform surgery and more.

Make an Appointment
I’m an oncologist focused on the treatment of patients diagnosed with Hairy Cell, Acute Myeloid, Acute Lymphocytic and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. I’m a member of the Leukemia Research Program at the OSUCCC – James and serve as an assistant professor in Ohio State’s Division of Hematology.
My research interest is in genomics and gene transcription in leukemia and its relevance in experimental therapeutics. My work explores whether and how mutations and transcriptional attributes can be studied in the context of clinical trials to provide prognostic and predictive information relevant to novel anticancer therapies.
I was recently named as one of six recipients of a Young Investigator Award from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Foundation. I received a six-figure grant for a project titled “Genomic Stratification and Prognostication of Adult Acute Myeloid Leukemia by Combination Mutation Status.”
I love the collaborative spirit at OSUCCC – James, and how we all share the common purpose of providing optimal and effective care and treatment for patients — and the goal of one day living in a world free of cancer.
