Cancer-Focused Research:

As a member of the soft tissue sarcoma committee of the Children's Oncology Group (COG), my primary clinical research interest lies in the area of clinical trials for pediatric patients with soft tissue sarcomas. I am study chair for a group-wide phase III COG clinical trial for rhabdomyosarcoma. I am the institutional PI for the Children's Oncology Group. My primary basic research interest lies in understanding the regulation and function of the GLI1 oncogene, as well as understanding the role of Hedgehog-GLI1 signal transduction in pediatric solid tumors.
