Dr. Parikh is an expert in Gastrointestinal Cancers, with a focus on Young Adults with Colorectal Cancer. Her clinical practice is comprised primarily of patients with colorectal and pancreatic cancers. She is a member of the NCCN guidelines for Colorectal Cancer. Dr. Parikh has had a robust clinical trial portfolio, with the hopes of bringing novel agents into the clinic and working closely with laboratory collaborators at MGH. She is an international expert in liquid biopsies, helping to develop these tools in the setting of residual disease after curative intent surgeries, to understand response to treatment and drug resistance. Though she is a clinical translational researcher, Dr. Parikh also demonstrates her passion and background in cancer care for low and middle-income countries. To that end, she does work that supports access, equity and education in LMICs and as the Director of the Global Cancer Care Program at MGH.
