I am an academic neuro-oncologist involved in clinical care, clinical research and teaching. I have a PhD neuroscience as well as training in clinical trial development, implementation and analysis. As a member of the Division of Neuro-Oncology at UCSF, I have been involved in investigator-initiated, sponsored and multi-institutional consortium studies. With my strong background in basic science I am particularly interested in the development of phase I clinical trials testing novel treatment strategies for brain tumor patients.
