Albert Einstein College of Medicine
I’m honored to be an LLS-TRP scholar. I am an Associate Professor of Medicine (Oncology) & Department of Molecular Biology (DMB) at the Montefiore-Einstein Cancer Center in Bronx, NY. I am originally from India and obtained my medical degree (M.B.B.S) from the Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical College in Mumbai, India. I then completed my internal medicine residency at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX followed by a fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at the Montefiore Medical Center & Albert Einstein College of Medicine. I specialize in treating patients with myeloid malignancies such as AML & MDS. My lab focuses on therapeutically targeting STAT3 in MDS/AML stem cells as well as on projects with large clinical & genomic datasets that have a health equity focus. In addition to oncology patient care and research, I enjoy being involved in educational activities & training programs at Montefiore-Einstein. I enjoy my time outside of work- I like to run, stay active and I also love learning languages. I can speak five languages and am learning Spanish now.
