Director, Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program
Director, Center for Clinical Cancer Genetics
My research interests are diverse and include: treatment of breast cancer, especially in young or pregnant women; familial cancers; molecular genetics of cancer; cancer risk assessment and chemoprevention; breast cancer and minority populations and disparities in health outcomes. My clinical interests include breast cancer, cancer risk assessment, cancer prevention, and general hematology and medical oncology.
