WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a clinical researcher and medical oncologist in the division of cell therapy and hematologic malignancies (blood cancers). I mainly specialize in treating leukemias and lymphomas. I’ve been at Duke for 40 years. Patients usually come to me after a primary care provider has noticed something irregular with the patient’s blood. My role is to look at the blood and the bone marrow (the factory where the blood is made) and work with the patient and my colleagues to come up with an accurate diagnosis and develop a treatment plan for the patient. Other than a brief period when I wanted to be a fireman, I’ve always wanted to be a doctor. I hurt my knee playing football in high school, and the great treatment I received during that episode confirmed my desire to be a doctor. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, children and grandchildren.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I have been involved in clinical research and drug development to advance the treatment and curability of acute leukemias in adults. I have also worked on teams that have developed drugs to treat and/or prevent nausea, anemia, low granulocytes and platelets during chemotherapy tumor lysis in chemotherapy. This research pathway has not only helped increase the treatability and curability of many blood cancers, but helped make the patient’s treatment more comfortable and safe.
