Research description

In addition to the cooperative group trials in head and neck cancers, I am the principal investigator of the investigator-initiated trial on mycosis fungoides, which combines total skin electron beam therapy with anti-CD30 antibody brentuximab. I am also the clinical PI of the study investigating the relationship between cytokines and radiation complications, titled 'MCC-12181: Serum Cytokine and Gene Expression Profiles as Predictors of Radiation-Induced Normal Tissue Complications.'
