Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

Breast radiation is currently delivered in a similar way to all women with breast cancer. My research goal is to improve our understanding of why distinct types of breast tumors (luminal, basal) may respond differently to radiation. Ultimately, I hope to prescribe radiation so that women with more sensitive tumors receive less toxic treatment and those with more aggressive tumors receive more effective radiation.
