Medical Therapy for Mucosal Melanoma

My research interests focus on uveal and mucosal melanoma. These less common types of melanoma start at the back of the eye or on hairless surfaces of the body and are genetically distinct from more common skin melanomas. By better understanding these differences, I believe we can improve how we care for people with these diseases. As a junior scientist, my research has been recognized and supported with grants from the Conquer Cancer Foundation and the Ocular Melanoma Foundation in conjunction with the American Association for Cancer Research.
