Areas of interest

As a surgical pathologist with solid research background in molecular pathology and cancer biology, my interests focus on the following areas of my practice.         

  • Teaching and training medical students and pathology residents
  • Translation research in cancer, especially breast cancer
  • Quality control and quality assurance in anatomical pathology
  • Quality control and quality assurance in immunostaining and FISH/CISH
  • Molecular pathology
