Description of Research Expertise

I have been involved for many years in phase 1 and phase 2 therapy for pediatric malignancies.
My focus at this time will be to participate in clinical trials for neuro-oncology patients but I will not longer be principal investigator of any of these trials.

Description of Clinical Expertise

At this time, my focus will be in clinical care of neuro-oncology patients with brain, spine tumors, with neurofibromatoses, and lymphatic and vascular malformations, etc. I primarily will be involved with chronic care and complex care of these patients. My responsibilities will include 10-12 weeks of inpatient Neuro-Oncology and 3.5-4.5 days per week of clinic

Description of Other Expertise

I will continue to develop the lymphatic, vascular malformation program within Oncology. This will include consultation on inpatients as well as outpatient clinical care of these patients. I will also work on infra-structure for this program within Oncology. I will also collaborate with the other teams involved in the care of patients with Vascular Lymphatic Malformations including Fetal Surgery, the Vascular Malformation Program, the Lymphatics Program, Dermatology, Hematology, and Genetics, etc.
