My goals are to develop and provide treatments that prolong and improve quality of the lives of patients with aggressive prostate kidney bladder and testicular cancer. This work involves the direct care of patients in the clinic and clinical research involving the development of new therapies in clinical trials. I devote over half of my time to understanding how prostate cancer spreads and resists therapies as well as methods of measuring this biology in patients which may lead to improved therapies designed to block this process. Outside of work I have a busy family life with three children and a wife who is a Duke pediatrician. I enjoy playing soccer and hiking.
