  • I am in my final year of Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship. I have an interest in translational research and medical education, and looking for a position in an academic practice that offers clinical trials. My research focus has focused on glycoprotein expression in ovarian cancer and the influence of chemokines in the ovarian cancer immune microenvironment.
