I am an HMS '04 graduate and currently Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology at the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center specializing in the treatment of patients with prostate cancer. I have enjoyed mentoring several HMS students on sucessful research projects and have opportunities for two HMS students to spend a full year with me with flexible start and end dates starting sometime after May 1st, 2014. One student will receive matching funds from "Fitz's Cancer Warriors" and the other from the "Frank and Anne Simons Fund". Each student will have his or her own projects to lead as first author and may participate in other projects going on in the group as well. Our group performs research on large clinically-annotated databases and also engages with partners in pathology and epidemiology to do translational research. Current areas of study include: Which patients are most likely to be helped vs. harmed by androgen deprivation therapy? What are the genetic and molecular predictors of outcomes? What sociodemographic factors affect the quality of care and survival of patients with cancer? Students would learn statistical techniques and work closely with me during the year to develop confidence as a clinical researcher.
