Overview

I am the Chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center. In this role, I oversee all the clinical and research programs in the department. The department is divided into many sectors and divisions, which cover clinical and research programs in all the anatomical areas of the body, plus divisions for physics, treatment planning, radiation therapy, nursing and administration. I am also Deputy Physician in Chief at Moffitt. In this role, I am part of the Physician in Chief Executive Committee and provide clinical leadership in various institutional activities such as strategic planning, payer strategies and faculty recruitment. I received my MD degree from the S.U.N.Y. Downstate Medical Center College of Medicine. I completed a Radiation Oncology Residency at Yale University School of Medicine, Yale-New Haven Hospital; I also served as Chief Resident. Following my residency, I joined the faculty at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. While at Memorial, I assumed increasing responsibilities over my 11-year tenure and was the Chief of the Brachytherapy Service in the Department of Radiation Oncology as well as the Institutional Program Leader of the multidisciplinary Head and Neck Cancer Disease Management Team. I was also appointed to the faculty of Cornell University School of Medicine; Assistant Professor (1987-1991); and Associate Professor (1991-1997). I joined the Continuum Health Partners (Beth Israel Medical Center, St. Luke's and Roosevelt Hospitals and NY Eye and Ear Infirmary) in 1997. At Continuum, I served as Chairman and Gerald J. Friedman Endowed Chair of Radiation Oncology and Physician-in-Chief of Continuum Cancer Centers of New York. I was also appointed as Professor of Radiation Oncology and Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. I have served as Chairman of the Board and President of ASTRO, the leading radiation oncology professional society in the country, as well as President of the American Brachytherapy Society and President of the International Society of Intraoperative Radiation Therapy. My research is focused on head and neck cancer, skin cancer and sarcoma. I have been instrumental in developing multidisciplinary treatment strategies that focus on organ and function preservation and quality of life outcomes. This has also included using brachytherapy and intraoperative radiation therapy to deal with complex clinical situations including re-treatment and second malignancies. I have been a visiting professor and lecturer at conferences and institutions all over the world. I am the senior editor of the textbook Head and Neck Cancer: A Multidisciplinary Approach, now in its fourth edition. I am a co-editor of Intraoperative Irradiation: Techniques and Results, now in its second edition. I am the recipient of numerous awards including the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, Clarence Dennis Society Prize, the Henschke Award for Brachytherapy, the Physician of Excellence Award from the American Cancer Society and the Boyer Prize for Biomedical Research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
