His clinical interests include the development of targeted therapies and immunotherapies for patients with melanoma, merkel cell carcinoma, advanced cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, and sebaceous gland tumors. At the Dana Farber Cancer Institute he acted as a principal investigator testing novel therapeutic approaches for melanoma including PARP inhibition, hsp90 inhibition, anti-apoptotic approaches, and immune modulatory and anti-CTLA4 based strategies. He investigated in non-melanoma skin cancers novel therapeutic strategies such as hedgehog signaling pathway inhibition in advanced basal cell carcinoma.
