Oncology is one of the most academic disciplines of medicine, and its scientific concepts are rapidly evolving. Over the past few years, a convergence of innovations has created an unprecedented opportunity for us to make a big impact on cancer. Working at a top-notch institution like Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center allows me to integrate those cutting age innovations into the day-to-day care of my patients. I hope to see a day when cancer, stripped of its intimidation, will be "a word, not a sentence."
