The focus of my research is investigator-initiated early phase clinical trials in breast cancer. Areas of interest include: breast cancer survivorship, in particular the impact and treatment of adjuvant chemotherapy-induced bone loss in premenopausal women; microRNA profiling of triple negative breast cancers to define subsets that have better or worse prognosis; and preclinical evaluations of novel drugs in collaboration with a medicinal chemist, including a PDK-1 inhibitor, AMP kinase inhibitor and the PARP inhibitors. At Mount Sinai I plan to form collaborations with laboratory-based scientists to evaluate novel drugs preclinically, develop investigator-initiated trials to further define subsets of triple negative breast cancers using genomic methods, and to conduct investigator-initiated trials in breast cancer survivorship.
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.
