Biography
I am a medical oncologist, clinical/translational researcher and Vice Chief of Research and Section Chief of Genitourinary Oncology in the Division of Oncology at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.  My research focuses on the development of novel therapies for patients with urologic malignancies. More broadly, I have led and participated in organizations and committees focused on the development of an infrastructure and funding mechanisms for bladder cancer-related research which has been historically underfunded.

More recently, I have been involved in bladder cancer-related outcomes research. My clinical expertise is in genitourinary cancers.
