Work with thought leaders and academic experts in clinical trials

Companies can benefit from collaborating with academic researchers in the field of clinical trials in several ways. Firstly, academic researchers bring a deep understanding of the scientific and regulatory aspects of clinical trials, ensuring compliance and high-quality research. They also have access to cutting-edge knowledge and expertise, keeping your company at the forefront of advancements in the field. Academic researchers can provide valuable insights and guidance in study design, data analysis, and interpretation, improving the overall quality and reliability of your research. Additionally, collaboration with academic researchers can enhance your company's reputation and credibility, as it demonstrates a commitment to rigorous and evidence-based research. Lastly, academic researchers often have established networks and collaborations with other experts and institutions, opening up opportunities for partnerships and access to additional resources.

Throughout my training, I have been focused toward my ultimate goal of becoming a clinical translational researcher in gastrointestinal (GI) oncology, collaborating closely with laboratory-based researchers to move laboratory findings into patients and to answer important clinical questions. My clinical research is centered on the development of novel agents in GI cancers, with particular interest in combinatorial approaches of epigenetic therapies and immunotherapies combinations. I ran the first phase II study of combination epigenetic therapy and immunotherapy in advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma, working with a collaborative team that incorporates leading experts in cancer immunology, epigenetics and drug development. I was awarded the 2018 ASCO Conquer Cancer Foundation Young Investigator Award for this project.  Together with Dr. Yarchoan, we are running a clinical trial of a novel neoantigen-specific vaccine in combination with immune checkpoint inhibitors for advanced fibrolamellar carcinoma (FLC) (NCT04248569). My laboratory focus has been on developing and validating a preclinical mouse model of FLC to investigate mechanisms underlying FLC pathogenesis, and will become a critical tool for investigating novel therapeutic strategies in FLC.
