Personal History:

I care for people with lymphoma.

I am interested in helping to develop better treatments.

Research Interests:

My principal effort is in opening clinical trials at UMGCC, offering new treatments to people with lymphoma. I also enjoy collaborating with the research labs here.

My most productive collaboration is with Dr. Tonya Webb and members of her lab. Together, we are working to understand how lymphoma suppresses the body's immune response. Dr Webb's lab is exploring ways to restore immune recognition in mouse models of lymphoma. She has some exciting findings that we may some day apply to humans.

Clinical Speciality:

  • Hodgkin Lymphoma
  • Follicular Lymphoma
  • Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma
  • Marginal Zone Lymphoma
  • Peripheral T-cell Lymphoma
  • Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
  • Adult T-cell Leukemia/Lymphoma
