I am a specialist in pediatric neuro-oncology and I have directed 3 academic programs in Manhattan (MSKCC, Beth Israel and NYU) over the past 30 years. I have written several protocols for COG and CCG as the PI and I have contributed extensively to the literature in terms of exploratory clinical trials and descriptive aspects of childhood brain tumors. I have trained over 15 fellows in pediatric neuro-oncology. I have collaborated closely with the NorthEast Proton Beam Facility at the MGH over the past 8 years. I am presently Director of Neuro-oncology of the NYU Cancer Institute.
