I started my cancer research career at Johns Hopkins in 1983. I am currently a Professor of Oncology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, co-Director of the Ludwig Center at Johns Hopkins University and Associate Director for Basic Research for the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center (SKCCC).

Our team has focused on defining the genetic bases of human cancer and translation of these genetic findings to clinical applications. Most recently we have focused on our efforts on early detection as the most efficient way to diminish the impact of cancer.

On the personal side, I’m fortunate to have a loving wife and 5 children. As hobbies, I enjoy building and programming electronic gadgets and boating on the Chesapeake Bay.
