Research Abstract

I have a clinical practice focused on patients with lung and esophageal cancer. My research focus is on clinical trials of novel agents. As part of the Termeer Center, I lead and participate in first-in-human studies of targeted agents across a broad range of tumor types, with a particular focus in lung.
