Research Abstract

I am an attending physician in the thoracic oncology group at the Massachusetts General Hospital. I focus on the design of clinical trials evaluating novel therapeutics for molecularly-defined subsets of non-small cell lung cancer. In parallel, I am interested in translational research questions with an emphasis on understanding the molecular mechanisms of resistance to targeted therapies.
