My area of expertise is in leukemias and lymphomas, including Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia/Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma. My research interests are focused on improving treatment options for patients with hematologic malignancies, through laboratory and clinical research.  I am also a staff physician at the Durham VA Medical Center, and am deeply committed to expanding treatment options for veterans, including working on clinical trials for multiple myeloma, prostate cancer, and lung cancer at the Durham VA.
