After a fellowship in hematology/oncology at UAB, he was a professor in the Department of Medicine, Genetics, and Biochemistry at UAB. He was acting director of UAB’s Comprehensive Cancer Institute before going to UAMS in 2007.

His research has been consistently funded by the National Institutes of Health for more than 25 years, and he is routinely named to the Castle Connolly “Best Doctors in America” list.
