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 no longer be principal investigator of any of these trials.

As part of the vascular and lymphatic vascular malformation team, I will participate in investigational 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 8-12 weeks of inpatient Neuro-Oncology and 3.5-4.0 days per week of clinic

Description of Other Expertise

I will continue to collaborate with the complex vascular malformation program within Oncology as well as to help organize and work within the multi-specialty program for vascular/lymphatic malformations that has been formed at CHOP. This will include consultation on inpatients as well as outpatient clinical care of these patients. I will also collaborate on the development of the infra-structure for this program. 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. Clinical research trials will also be generated within this program; I will participate in these trials.
