Academic Interests

These include clinical research around adjuvant treatment options for patients with esophageal and stomach cancers, supportive care for patients undergoing abdominal radiation therapy including novel combinations of antiemetics in this setting (AVERT trial: NCT00970905), and the protective impact of lipid lowering  agents called statins on the risk of venous blood clots in patients with advanced cancer. I also participate in many national cooperative group trials covering the cancer sites listed above.
