  • Background

    I provide care for a broad range of hematology and oncology conditions in our suburban clinic in Voorhees, New Jersey. Our patients benefit from a small, approachable and welcoming clinic in a suburban setting that also is linked to the world-class medical expertise, clinical research and state-of-the-art facilities at Children's Hospital in Philadelphia.

    A prominent part of pediatric care is being able to interact with families -- as well as to communicate on an age-appropriate level to patients. Our team spends a significant amount of time answering questions and explaining complicated treatments.

    My specific interest is in solid tumors and neuroblastoma in particular. Neuroblastoma is often a very aggressive tumor that affects young children. My specific research is related to the effect of molecules called polyamines on neuroblastoma growth -- and how the molecules can be manipulated to treat this cancer. Depriving cells of polyamines shows promise in the treatment of certain cancers.

    I hope to be able to translate this research into a clinical application that will help young patients with neuroblastoma and other solid tumors.
