A father, husband, physician-scientist, and medical oncologist in Houston, TX.
My thesis research focused on the role of inherited genetic variations in human cancer.
We aimed to identify new variants associated with cancer predisposition and clinical outcome using high-throughput genomic approaches. This work is part of a global effort to better understand the biological pathways that is important for cancer initiation and progression.
