I direct the Clinical Trial Unit at the Cross Cancer Institute, a highly motivated team of investigators and experience staff that enters nearly 15% of our patients on cancer therapy trials. As the Co-Chair of Research for the Northern Alberta Breast Cancer Program, I supervise the clinical and research programs for women with breast cancer in the referral area of the Cross Cancer Institute, Edmonton. I am Executive Director of Translational Research in Oncology, a global network of academic investigators carrying out trials of novel anticancer drug treatments. As a medical oncology clinical investigator, my major interest is in the clinical testing of new biological, hormonal, and cytotoxic drugs for the treatment of early stage and advanced disease. I serve on the steering committees of eleven international systemic therapy trials.
