I am currently Professor of Medical Oncology and Director of the Division of Hematologic Malignancies and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation in the Division of Medical Oncology at Thomas Jefferson University and Hospitals in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Throughout my career, I have focused on developing new and improved therapies for adult patients with lymphoid leukemias. Given the older age of patients with these diseases my work has focused on developing less toxic therapies that preserve a high level of anti-leukemic effect. I have served as the PI on numerous grants including an NCI suggested RO1 to develop novel strategies of treatment for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
