During my 30 years at the University of Florida, one of my areas if focus has been the multidisciplinary management of patients with pediatric sarcomas of soft tissue and bone. Currently, I serve as the Medical Director for the UF Department of Radiation Oncology and participate in several national professional societies and committees, including the American Board of Radiology and the Radiologic Society of North America. Clinical research productivity includes 55 peer-reviewed publications and several supporting grants. My clinical practice integrates translational research collaborations with our UF Prostate Disease Center, and also with our medical physics and informatics programs. Direct collaboration with colleagues in the UF Cancer and Genetics Institute connects my Ph.D. training in Pharmacology with the applied radiation biology, to facilitate the translation of laboratory research to clinical application in the delivery of multi-modality integrated cancer therapies. My specific technical interests include the management of metastatic cancers utilizing the technologies of Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) with Image Guidance (IGRT), which employ accelerated hypo-fractionation dose delivery protocols; and the development of emerging mobile and interactive technologies to enable an eMedical infrastructure to facilitate the collection of physician and patient reported quality and satisfaction data related to cancer diagnosis, treatment, and Quality of Life (QoL) outcomes.
