About

Bio

I am focused on improving and developing new biomarkers for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, with a special focus breast cancer. I completed my specialty training in Anatomic Pathology and Laboratory Medicine in 2012 at Vanderbilt and my MD and PhD from Yale University in 2008. Answers on HealthTap are my own opinions and do not represent Vanderbilt. My answers should not substitute for medical advice following a full history and physical with your primary care provider.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
