I have been on staff at St. Luke’s Hospital since 1995 and have dedicated almost my entire career in serving the patients and community of St. Luke’s. I was initially involved in training fellows in the Hematology/Oncology fellowship program at St. Luke’s Hospital and subsequently served as a voluntary attending physician in private practice.
I am proud of the affiliation with Mount Sinai particularly now that the Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai has received NCI designation as a Clinical Cancer Center. I have always been focused on providing personalized, compassionate care and now with the close association with Mount Sinai my patients will have access to the most up-to-date research, diagnostic tools and therapies available.

As a fellow my research project focused on the drug development of the topoisomerase I inhibitor topotecan. Using Western Blot assays I quantified the topoisomerase I copy numbers in a variety of human tumors to identify potential cancers that may be susceptible to this therapy. I was also involved in developing a mouse in vivo system for combination immuno-chemotherapy using xenografts of human mammary tumors in mice.
Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
