- Clinical interest for patients
I am interested in advancing precision medicine for lung cancer which includes identifying new gene targets. It also includes understanding mechanisms of resistance to targeted therapies. When I am not seeing patients in the clinic I run a laboratory that is developing new models for cancer research and studying mechanisms of drug resistance to targeted therapies.
- Research interest for patients
My research interests are primary focused on oncogene-driven cancer (ALK, ROS1, RET, NTRK1/2/3, MET, EGFR) and drug-resistance to targeted therapies. My laboratory derives new cancer models by making human cell lines and interrogating these models to understand how to better treat cancers with combination targeted therapies.
