I joined the faculty of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in the Spring of 2018 as Director of the Center for Personalized Medicine, Director of the Pathology Network Shared Resource (PNSR) and Chief for Research and Biobanking in the Department of Pathology. I'm a board-certified pathologist with a subspecialty certification in dermatopathology.
My research focuses on identifying molecular abnormalities that can be used to improve the outcome of cancer patients by applying more effective therapies and identifying patients at increased risk for developing the disease. As a director of Center for Personalized Medicine, I am dedicated to rapidly and efficiently translating basic science discoveries into clinical trials with a goal towards decreasing the lag time between basic science discovery and clinical impact.
