As a board-certified gynecologic oncologist caring for cancer patients undergoing surgery, chemotherapy, and biologic treatment over the last 20 years, I have a deep understanding of the pathophysiology of ovarian, uterine, cervical, and vulvovaginal cancers. I trained at MD Anderson Cancer Center under the Felix Rutledge oncology fellowship and at University of California, Los Angeles and Irvine for Medical School and Gynecologic Oncology fellowship.
My translational science research on cancer immunotherapy was supported under a National Institute of Health Career Development Award. With respect to population science, I studied ovarian cancer prevention and outcomes under a National Cancer Institute grant. As a clinical researcher, I served as the principal investigator for numerous phase II and III clinical trials and received multiple grants and awards, including those from the National Cancer Institute, the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, Gynecologic Cancer Foundation, and the Gynecologic Oncology Group / NRG.
Over the years, my research studies have published nearly 200 peer-reviewed journals in the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, Lancet Oncology, Journal of Clinical Oncology and Clinical Cancer Research and numerous textbook chapters. Clinically, I have been elected as the Best doctor in America and Best Doctors as recognized by the U.S. News and World Report.
