Our laboratory is exploring novel anti-cancer treatments for pediatric and adult malignancies. We are also interested in the toxicities of chemotherapy and on whether mutations in specific genes make children more prone to develop toxicity after chemotherapy treatment.
I received a B.A. in Biology and Biochemistry at Brandeis University. I received my medical degree from Washington University School of Medicine. I completed Pediatric Residency at Washington University, St. Louis Children's Hospital, followed by a fellowship in Pediatric Hematology-Oncology at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
