I am active in clinical and translational research in an effort to optimize the treatment and outcomes of patients with soft tissue sarcomas, desmoid tumors, and cancers of the stomach.
Current Translational Research Projects:
Principal Investigator. Comparative Genomics of Retroperitoneal Liposarcoma.
Current Prospective Clinical Trials:
Phase I/II Trial of Pre-Operative Image Guided Intensity Modulated Proton Radiation Therapy (IMPT) with Simultaneously Integrated Boost to the High Risk Margin for Retroperitoneal Sarcomas.
Phase I Trial of Bevacizumab, Metronomic Doxorubicin, and Radiation Therapy for Resectable Soft Tissue Sarcomas.
