A major initiative is building a cancer center-wide enterprise emcompassing quality initiatives in infectious diseases, infection control, anti-infective stewardship, and patient/staff education. My research interests are focused on broad-based outcomes measures for oncology patients treated for viral, bacterial, and fungal infections and in optimizing treatment in cancer patients co-infected with HIV and other chronic viral infections. In addition, I have a keen long-term interest in developing clinical prediction tools for optimizing anti-infective treatment strategies in individual immunocompromised patients.
