I am a surgical oncologist with clinical expertise in melanoma and soft- tissue sarcoma. I am investigating new ways to allow the immune system to fight cancer. I am also involved in clinical trials aimed at defining the role of current therapies and improving outcomes through novel treatments, most recently checkpoint blockade.
