Personal Statement

"I am a Physician Scientist focused on T/NK-cell lymphomas and EBV-associated lymphomas. My goal is to offer patients a roadmap to understand their illness, find the determination to fight, select the best treatment and move forward with confidence. My overarching principle is patient empowerment based on knowledge. The more people know, the more prepared they are to face adversities. Knowledge guides expectations and grounds hope in facts. Great cancer care is based on compassion and research."
