Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My research focuses on finding new ways to treat and prevent non-melanoma skin cancer. I am committed to bringing laboratory-based insights to benefit our patients. I am interested in these questions:
1. How do we prevent skin cancer?
2. What is the relationship between sunlight, vitamin D, and skin cancer risk?
3. Can we target certain tumor signaling pathways (Hedgehog pathway) to treat basal cell carcinomas - the most common cancer in the US?
