The primary focus of my clinical research has been on clinical, pathological and molecular factors which may predict for outcomes in breast cancer patients treated with radiation therapy, ethnic variations in breast cancer, quality improvement, guidelines, and standards in breast health care delivery, and investigating radiation techniques. In addition to being Chief of Breast Radiation Oncology across all of our Yale sites, I am the medical director of our department's facility at the Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Center in Waterford. I have been on the board of directors of the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) of the American College of Surgeons for the last 5 years and have worked to develop national guidelines, standards and a surveying process for accreditation of breast centers, was on the editorial board for the Journal of Clinical Oncology and The Breast Journal for 3 years each, Associate Senior Breast Editor for International Journal of Radiation Therapy, Biology, Physics for 5 years, a member of the American College of Radiology Breast Appropriateness Criteria Committee to established clinical guidelines for breast cancer treatment, the NCCN Breast Panel and the American Board of Radiology Breast Panel for written and oral boards. More recently, I have co-chaired the margins guidelines for breast conservation therapy (Society for Surgical Oncology SSO/ American Society of Clinical Oncology ASTRO) for invasive cancers and DCIS.
