Dr. Burke joined the faculty in July 2014. He attended Providence College in Rhode Island where he earned his BS in Biology. Subsequently, he matriculated at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and earned his MD. He then completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Chicago Medical Center, followed by a year serving as a Chief Resident. He recently completed his Hematology/Medical Oncology fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York where his clinical and research interests focused on leukemia, particularly adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). He performed clinical research regarding the role of asparaginase and “pediatric-inspired” therapeutic regimens in adult ALL, as well as investigating therapies that spare cytotoxic chemotherapy in older adult Philadelphia chromosome-positive ALL.
