Research Interests

I have established a diversified research program focusing on evaluation of new agents and new combinations of agents for the treatment of gynecologic malignancies. My research has primary focus on pharmacology including drug mechanism of action, mechanisms of drug resistance (and modulation of resistance), drug metabolism and plasma protein binding drug interactions that effect therapeutic outcomes.   The success of my research is measured directly by the transfer of scientific results from the bench to bedside.
