    Collapse Overview
    I am a physician scientist in the Departments of Radiation Oncology and Neurological Surgery. My clinical expertise is providing radiotherapy for children and adults with nervous system cancers. My scientific focus is understanding oncogenic growth factor signaling through receptor tyrosine kinases and the Ras signaling pathway with an emphasis on neurofibromatosis and nervous system tumors to identify better treatments for patients.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
