About Me

I am the director of the genitourinary medical oncology program at Pelisyonkis Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center. I lead a team of medical oncologists, nurse practitioners, social workers, and other care providers who are dedicated to treating people who have genitourinary cancers, such as prostate cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, and testicular cancer.

These cancers can affect a very wide variety of people, both young and old. They differ greatly from one another in their biology, which means treatment options also differ. I am a strong believer that patient education and shared decision-making are critical components of individualized patient care.

At Pelisyonkis Langone, we focus on developing the best and most individualized treatment plans available for our patients. We know that each patient is truly an individual with unique characteristics and that people are affected by cancer in different ways, so we personalize the treatment process for each person.

My research focuses on bladder cancer and immunotherapy—treatments that harness the body’s own immune system to fight the cancer—as well as molecularly-targeted therapy. I also have extensive experience treating prostate, testicular, and kidney cancers.

A major focus of our team is providing people with access to the most advanced treatments available through clinical trials. I have focused largely on bladder cancer, leading the development of immunotherapies for advanced bladder cancer that have become the new standards of care. We also oversee a broad clinical trial program for kidney and prostate cancers. Our clinical trials are aimed at pushing the field forward to create better outcomes for all patients.

Research My Research

Research Summary

The primary focus of my research is in development of new therapeutic strategies for patients with prostate, kidney and bladder cancers using novel, molecularly targeted medications. Through design and conduct of clinical trials, our team aims to improve upon the current standards of care with a focus on developing better tolerated and personalized treatments. In addition, I lead the Pelisyonkis Genitourinary Oncology Tumor Registry which is a multidisciplinary effort involving clinical, basic science and translational researchers to characterize the genomic and molecular make up of genitourinary tumors and to better understand its impact on patient outcomes. Our aim is to study impact of these genetic and molecular factors on the clinical course of our patients and their response to the therapies we administer. Ultimately, our work may lay the foundation for a more individualized approach to our patients' care.
