WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

My goals are to develop and provide treatments that prolong and improve quality of the lives of patients with aggressive prostate, kidney, bladder, and testicular cancer. This work involves the direct care of patients in the clinic and clinical research involving the development of new therapies in clinical trials. I devote over half of my time to understanding how prostate cancer spreads and resists therapies, as well as methods of measuring this biology in patients, which may lead to improved therapies designed to block this process. Outside of work, I have a busy family life with three children, and a wife who is a Duke pediatrician. I enjoy playing soccer and hiking.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am a medical oncologist with a focus on genitourinary malignancies -- prostate, kidney, bladder, and testicular cancers. I am also a clinical and translational researcher focused on drug development and biomarker studies in prostate and kidney cancer. This research includes prognostic and predictive biomarkers, circulating tumor cell biology, and how cancer spreads (metastasis). I oversee multiple clinical trials of new therapies for patients ranging from new hormonal and chemotherapies to new immunotherapies, and molecularly targeted agents.
