Clinical Research

I have focused my clinical efforts on determining the effectiveness of radiation therapy in different disease sites.  

Central Nervous System:  I am currently working on creating an Recursive Partitioning Analysis for Elderly patients (>70 years) with glioblastoma using about 1500 patients from the USA and France in a multinational collaboration.  This work began at the Cleveland Clinic  and gained momentum as I began a collaboration with Fabio Iwamoto at the NIH and data from both institutions as well as the French Brain Tumor consortium are now published as a Recursive Partitioning Analysis in the journal Cancer.  This article was highlighted in an editorial in Neuro Oncology.
