    Personal profile

    Research interests

    My research program focuses on utilizing unique genetic models to identify new targets for improving tumor responses to radiation and to minimize damage to the heart from radiation exposure. Our laboratory aims to identify novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers of radiation-induced cardiac toxicity in order to better prevent, minimize, and treat this long-term toxicity. In addition, we are identifying host or tumor microenvironmental factors that improve the responses of breast cancer to radiation therapy.

    Clinically, I treat breast cancer patients and also perform clinical trials which aim to improve cancer patient outcomes and quality of life.

    Areas of Clinical Interest

    Radiation oncology, breast cancer.
