Professional Summary:

I am the new Director of Hematology and Medical Oncology for Great Lakes Cancer Care. I am also the Associate Chief of Hematology and Medical Oncology for the University of Buffalo, and a Clinical Associate Professor of Internal Medicine. I obtained my double major in biochemistry and genetics/cell biology at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Thereafter, I completed my MD and PhD degrees at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. I did my internal medicine residency at The George Washington University in Washington, DC, where I completed four months of training at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. Subsequently, I completed my clinical fellowship in Hematology and Medical Oncology, and post-doctoral fellowship in biochemistry at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA.

I was the youngest cancer center director in the country when I took over as the leader of the St. Luke’s Regional Cancer Center in Duluth, MN, in October of 2012. Thereafter, I was the Director of Hematology and Medical Oncology of seven cancer centers for Covenant Health/Thompson Oncology Group in Knoxville, TN, prior to coming to Buffalo.

I am a strong proponent of clinical trials, experimental therapeutics, and precision oncology. I have published in numerous journals, including The New England Journal of Medicine, on several occasions. My primary interests are precision genomics/oncology, the inhibition of intracellular trafficking of proteins as it relates to the development of new therapeutics, and clinical trials involving novel agents.
