Career and Research Goals

I'm interested in breast cancer clinical research, developing clinical trials, and providing excellence in clinical care. I also have an interest in immunotherapy, both in general oncology and how it might apply specifically to metastatic breast cancer disease.

What are the strengths of the Duke program?

Friendly, collaborative atmosphere. Mentors and leadership who are involved and go out of their way to teach, provide guidance, and ensure you are thriving. Abundance of opportunities.
