Research Interests

My mission is to cure pediatric cancer using state of the art radiotherapeutic technology.  This technology may include Rapid Arc intensity modulated radiotherapy with daily image guidance, cyberknife, or adaptive treatment planning.

My research interest naturally includes pediatric malignancies that are treated with radiation. These include but are not limited to neuroblastoma, Wilm’s tumor, pediatric Hodgkin’s lymphoma, CNS malignancies (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, medulloblastoma, glioma, and others), rhabdomyosarcoma, leukemia, and numerous rare tumors. In addition I have trained in delivering proton therapy and have a research interest in total body irradiation. I am a member of the Children’s Oncology Group and am a committee member on one of their national protocols.

I am currently working on completing a comprehensive pediatric radiation oncology database that encompasses all the patients treated within the last 20 years at UM/JMH. This is a joint project with Miami Children’s hospital. I believe that retrospectively reviewing our experience with more than 500 patients will produce new research pathways for pediatric oncology and have the potential to guide future prospective clinical trials.
