Dr. Duke specializes in infectious diseases and treats patients who may have compromised immune systems due to cancer.
I believe in spending time getting to know patients in order to understand their goals and incorporate those into education and treatment regarding disease processes.
Infectious diseases in people who may be immunocompromised from chemotherapy, stem cell transplants or HIV.

Cancer patients have a special perspective on life and I want to prevent infections from complicating cancer treatment. I hope that we will be able to make advances in infectious diseases such that they no longer complicate stem cell transplants. I want to help people enjoy healthy, fulfilling lives.
I am studying CMV (cytomegalovirus) virus-host dynamics inpatients who have undergone stem cell transplant using mathematical modeling in the Schiffer Group at Fred Hutch.
Outside of work, I enjoy watching the Green Bay Packers and secondly the Seattle Seahawks, exploring the West Coast, soaking in hot tubs, singing in the car, watching movies (good ones,mainly), fancy computers, llamas and alpacas, and music of the 1980s.
