Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My research focuses on breast cancer treatment and survivorship. My primary research interest is the development of novel strategies for the treatment of early stage triple-negative and BRCA1/2 mutation-associated breast cancer. Other areas of interest include prevention of cardiac damage associated with breast cancer treatment and cardiotoxicity of anti-cancer agents.
