Professional Summary:

I am a physician board-certified in internal medicine and medical oncology. I care exclusively for adult patients diagnosed with acute leukemias, myelodysplastic syndromes, chronic myeloid leukemia, chronic myeloproliferative disorders and other bone marrow disorders. I care for people diagnosed with these illnesses who are hospitalized at Roswell Park Cancer Institute or who come to the leukemia service at Roswell Park for outpatient care.

I have an active translational research program. My research interest is focused on understanding more about the role of the immune microenvironment in facilitating persistent disease in acute myeloid leukemia. My goal is also to develop novel immunotherapeutic strategies for this disease. I invite interested students to my lab to collaborate with me in conducting research.

I am responsible for supervising, teaching and mentoring medical students, internal medicine residents and hematology/oncology fellows at Roswell Park. I lecture to the hematology/oncology fellows as part of their curriculum and to residents rotating on the leukemia service. My focus during these lectures is mainly myeloid malignancies. I also teach and train at the bedside with the fellows, residents and students who are on service with me, and I teach and train in clinic settings as well. Given my expertise, I am able to provide trainees with comprehensive knowledge about how to render the best possible care for individuals diagnosed with bone marrow disorders, a medically complex patient population.
