Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Chief, Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Washington University School of Medicine

Clinical Expertise

As a member of our ovarian, cervical and endometrial cancer specialist teams, Dr. Powell cares for patients diagnosed with these cancers through treatment and recovery.

Research Interest

My clinical research interests are primarily in the diagnosis and treatment of uterine and ovarian cancers with chemotherapy and radiation. I am also studying pharmacologic treatment of preinvasive abnormalities of the uterine cervix in an effort to help some patients avoid surgery and loss of fertility. My laboratory research focuses on endometrial cancer etiology and tumor marker development.
