CBES Area of Interest:
I am chairman of a clinical-based oncology program, as well as a clinician researcher who conceives, develops, implements, and reports clinical research protocols. My experience in conducting and reporting phase I to phase III investigator initiated and industry sponsored studies is highly valuable to my position as principal investigator for this project. I have developed and participated in over 50 clinical studies and have reported these in numerous peer-reviewed journals including Lancet, Lancet Oncology, JCO and Cancer Discovery. My programmatic experience with clinical research has included collaborations in SPORE projects, program project grants, and most recently 2 successfully completed Department of Defense funded studies. Currently, as I oversee a broad clinical network of physicians, I have developed disease specific sections, implemented clinical tools such as EAPathways, a treatment pathway and research trial notification system, and a patient reported side effect app. Additionally, I have extensive experience mentoring trainees and junior faculty in the development of grants and protocols.
