Research & Scholarship

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My laboratory’s research examines the molecular events that lead to and sustain tumorigenesis, with a focus on soft tissue tumors. Current research interests include:

1) Gene expression profiling of soft tissue tumors to examine stromal expression patterns in carcinomas.

2) RNA-seq expression studies of potential therapeutic gene targets in epithelial cancers and soft tissue tumors.

3) Identification of novel markers in tumors for diagnosis, prognosis and prediction of therapeutic response.
