Research Narrative:

The research interest of my group lies in identifying the molecular mechanisms of cancer progression in solid tumors. We utilize whole genomic approaches in combination with functional studies in order to understand tumor progression in prostate and ovarian cancers. Our primary research interest in prostate cancer is to define germline and somatic alterations, as well as the manner by which they collectively influence progression into aggressive disease. Further, we are interested in understanding the manner by which non-coding regions in the genome exert their effects on gene regulation. A second area of research investigation focuses on delineating the molecular pathways that are involved in ovarian cancer initiation and acquisition of resistance.
