Dr. Gabram is an expert in the surgical treatment of breast cancer and has been regularly recognized by Castle Connolly, Atlanta Magazine, and Women's Health publications as a top doctor. In 2005, she was recruited by Dr. Otis Brawley to lead the AVON Comprehensive Breast Center of the Grady Health System. In 2009, she became the principal investigator on the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University's AVON Foundation grant, a role which charges her with decreasing disparities in breast cancer care through a community education outreach program and providing access to high quality care for breast cancer patients in the Grady Health System. In September 2009, she was appointed to deputy director of the Georgia Cancer Center for Excellence at Grady. As of October 2011, she is surgeon-in-chief at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Dr. Gabram's research activities include being the principal investigator on a statewide genomics grant that involves identifying women at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer with referral to genetic counseling and testing when appropriate. In 2010, Dr. Gabram, Dr. Paula Vertino, and Dr. Ruth O'Regan began designing and implementing Emory's breast tissue bank, which now collects breast tissue samples and data from three clinical sites and enables researchers at Emory and across the country to find answers to improving diagnosis, treatment, and even prevention of breast cancer.
