My research is focused on the development and clinical translation of novel therapies for acute leukemias.  I currently lead multiple clinical trials at the Dana Farber Harvard Cancer Center for patients with advanced leukemia and hematologic malignancies.  I have a specific interest in studying FLT3 inhibition, aurora kinase inhibition, and antibody-drug conjugates as novel therapies.
