Area of Interest

My cancer research interests include:

  1. Optimizing colorectal cancer management including assessment of response, via imaging, to preoperative therapy ultimately leading to patient-specific minimally invasive or organ preserving approaches.
  2. Understanding the etiology and natural history of early-age-of-onset and hereditary forms of colorectal cancer in order to optimize early detection, treatment and prevention.

My clinical and translational research has been made possible via strong multidisciplinary collaborations with clinical researchers and scientists from a wide range of fields.
