Research Abstract

I am a physician-scientist active in translational research studying mechanisms of endocrine resistance and strategies to improve treatment for hormone receptor positive breast cancers. I am also engaged in the care of breast cancer patients and innovative clinical trials with the goal to identify new treatments to improve outcomes in breast cancer patients.
