Professor and Chair of Pathology

The group focuses on research on common human cancers such as breast, prostate, colorectal and oropharyngeal cancers, specifically in the investigation of biomarkers of prognosis and treatment response. Studies are also undertaken on innovative methods of treatment in animal models that can be subsequently translated to human cancer management. The group is also interested in invitro modeling of newly discovered genes or molecules that may be important in the pathogenesis of some of the common human malignancies.
