A.              Personal Statement

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Urologic Oncology in the Department of Urology at the Stephenson Oklahoma Cancer Center at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. My contributions to the urologic literature on the subject of racial disparities in complication rates among patients undergoing major urologic cancer surgery are a testament to my passion for improving health care delivery on a population scale. Prior to joining the University of Oklahoma, I was a co-investigator in a Phase 3 surgical trial entitled “Assessment of Reliability of Cystoscopic Evaluation Predicting pTO Urothelial Carcinoma of the Bladder at the Time of Radical Cystectomy” at Fox Chase Cancer Center. This is an ongoing trial designed to evaluate the reliability of cystoscopy and biopsy to predict final pathology at radical cystectomy in the hopes that future patients who undergo neoadjuvant chemotherapy and have complete bladder responses can forego surgery safely. For this work, I was the 2015 recipient of the Fox Chase Cancer Center & Temple University Hospital Resident Research Award and was the first Urology resident to receive this honor. At the University of Oklahoma, I have worked closely with other Urologic Oncologists in my department studying survival rates in special subsets of patients with advanced testis cancer and contemporary trends in the utilization of robot-assisted technologies in the treatment of urologic cancers. My clinical research interests also include prostate cancer in minority populations which has led to a collaboration with Motolani Ogunsanya, Ph.D. in the Department of Pharmacy: Clinical and Administrative Sciences.
