After completing my fellowship at Fox Chase, I joined the medical staff in 2004. I have a special interest in lung cancers. I believe in offering my patients the newest therapies available, which include antibodies and other immune-based therapies.
My laboratory research is focused on the production of monoclonal antibodies against novel targets in tumor blood vessels. These antibodies have the potential to be used in the treatment of several types of cancer. In addition, my other research interest is to learn how the body's immune system plays a role in the fight against cancer.
