MD '10 | New York City, NY
TITLE: Pediatrics Assistant Professor
COMPANY: Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Michael specializes in caring for children and young adults with rare solid tumors, particularly sarcomas and cancers of the liver and kidneys. The majority of his time is spent in translational research, leveraging genomics and proteomics to identify novel biomarkers and develop rationally targeted therapies for patients with high risk and relapsed cancers. He has published his research findings in more than 20 peer reviewed manuscripts, more than half as the first author.
Aside from his research, he is actively involved in the Children’s Oncology Group and the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
Michael earned his bioengineering bachelor’s degree from Cornell University. However, Michael says his focus on pediatric oncology came only after spending a year as an oncology researcher at UF with Dr. William Dunn in his cell biology lab, and then working with UF’s Dr. William Slayton.
