After completing a fellowship at University of Miami, I came to the Cancer Institute of New Jersey in 2002. With a focus on gynecologic-oncology, I completed my residency at Emory University in Atlanta.
I have a long-standing interest in the development of biological therapies, a field that is directly related to vaccines. As a member of the Fannie E. Rippel Center for Women’s Reproductive Cancers/Gynecologic Oncology Program, I have the opportunity to further explore and validate biologic targets, as we aim to develop the next generation of targeted therapies for gynecologic cancers. My current efforts concentrate on ovarian cancer and ascites. As a member of the Human Research Oversight Committee, we monitor the safety of our clinical research endeavors at the Cancer Institute.
As a clinician, I strive to provide excellent and comprehensive care that reflects the current state of the art in our field. This includes performing robotic assisted surgery for a variety of gynecologic and oncologic conditions.
As a member of the Center for Research and Mentorship of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, I am actively involved in the education mission of our medical school. I have developed the gynecologic oncology curriculum for the residency program and serve as the director of the clinical rotation of the residents. I am also the author or co-author of more than 15 publications.
