About Me

I am a medical oncologist with a special focus on genetics, particularly treating patients with advanced melanoma and germline mutations that predispose them to many other types of cancer such as breast, ovarian and colon cancers. I was named to the Castle Connolly list of “Regional Top Doctors” from 2006 to 2019.

As a member of the Translational Therapeutics Program at the OSUCCC – James, my primary research interest is in improving the identification and management of individuals at hereditary risk of cancer, as well as chemoprevention studies in this high-risk population. Additionally, I’m the primary investigator for a multi-site, investigator-initiated clinical trial for the treatment of c-kit mutated melanomas.

I serve as an associate professor of clinical internal medicine at The Ohio State University College of Medicine, helping to train the next generation of future physicians. I love being affiliated with the OSUCCC – James. This is a world-class facility filled with experts in their particular field of cancer treatment and research. Together, we collaborate as we care for our patients and look for the next big breakthrough in cancer research.
