I am a clinical and translational oncologist specializing in cancers of the genitourinary tract, specifically bladder and prostate cancers. My research is focused on understanding the basic biology these malignancies and in developing novel therapeutic ways to treat disease. I have investigated advanced prostate and bladder cancer, particularly exploring the predictive value of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in these malignancies. As a clinical academic oncologist I serve as principal investigator or co-investigator on a number clinical trials in advanced prostate and bladder cancer, including many studies of immunotherapy. These clinical trials allow us to recruit patients for much of our biomarker work. I hope this work will help us to be able to predict which are likely to respond to existing and novel therapies and allow us to tailor our clinical strategy to avoid giving toxic and ineffective therapies, and to select patients most likely to benefit.
