WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I’ve spent significant portions of my life in New York, North Carolina, and Massachusetts, and I rejoined the team here at Duke in 2014. I love what I do, and I hope that that enthusiasm shows in a patient- and service-centered approach to neurosurgery and neuro-oncology. My career is dedicated to co-operative, multidisciplinary, rational, and organized brain tumor therapy, and I look to usher in a period where the science and treatment arms of brain tumor therapy suffer no disjoint, but instead represent the convergent efforts of researchers, neuro-oncologists, and neurosurgeons alike. I hope to see such synergy become standard of care. Outside the hospital walls, I lead an active life, and have strong interests in travel, food, and wine.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests lie within the arenas of brain tumor immuno-biology and immuno-therapeutic design. As director of the Duke Brain Tumor Immunotherapy Program, I head a very talented group focused on bringing to clinical trial the latest immune-based therapies (such as vaccines) for primary brain tumors and brain metastases. I have particular interest in uncovering and reversing alterations to the immune systems of brain tumor patients, with the goal of designing more tailored and successful personalized therapies.
