  • I am currently Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center and Director of the Hematologic Malignancies Section of the Division of Hematology/Oncology. Prior to joining the faculty at Columbia University Medical Center in January, 2013, I was an Attending Physician on the Leukemia Service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center for over 18 years. My main focus is the treatment of acute and chronic leukemias, myeloproliferative neoplasms, and myelodysplastic syndrome. My research interests include acute myeloid leukemia, radioimmunotherapy with alpha and beta particle-emitting radioisotopes, monoclonal antibody therapy for leukemia, the development of novel small molecule inhibitors for leukemia, and the molecular monitoring of minimal residual disease. I am the 2001 recipient of the Louis and Allston Boyer Young Investigator Award for Distinguished Achievement in Biomedical Research from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. I am author or coauthor of more than 80 articles and book chapters, have been the principal investigator on over 25 clinical trials, and regularly lecture at national and international meetings. I serve as a Leukemia Section Editor for The Oncologist.
