I am a physician-scientist with clinical expertise in phase I experimental therapeutics and gynecologic cancers. My laboratory expertise is in human immunology with an emphasis on understanding the immunopathologic basis of human diseases including cancer, infections and autoimmunity. I have significant administrative expertise as past chief of two different academic divisions of hematology and medical oncology, director of a general clinical research center and executive director of an NCI-designated cancer center. I translate my group?s discoveries into novel clinical trials. I have been funded by the NIH and other entities since 1987.
