The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center
Department of Gynecologic Oncology & Reproductive Medicine

As a physician-scientist in the Department of Gynecologic Oncology, my research emphasis is on the pathogenesis of endometrial cancer and the development of chemopreventive strategies for women at increased risk of the disease. In addition, I serve as the Co-Medical Director of Clinical Cancer Genetics and have an active clinical research program focused on hereditary gynecologic cancers.

Depending on the student’s interests, a tutorial in my laboratory would provide experience in animal models of endometrial cancer and chemoprevention. In addition, clinical research studies in clinical cancer genetics, specifically in Hereditary Breast Ovarian Cancer Syndrome and Lynch Syndrome/Hereditary Non-polyposis could be undertaken.
