Area of interest
My research involves the study of genitourinary malignancies, with the goal of translating histologic findings into molecular discoveries, with the ultimate aim of improving patient care. Specifically, I am focused on the molecular characterization of histologic variants of urothelial carcinoma. These malignancies are rare and understudied, making them ideal targets for translational study, combining the knowledge of pathology, medical oncology and urology. In addition to my own projects, I provide support to a wide variety of study types, including clinical trials, translational studies, basic science studies and animal models as the Faculty Director of the Translational Pathology Laboratory.
