Research Interests

Clinical pathologic correlates in non-Hodgkin lymphoma; Immunomorphometric assessment of potential prognostic biomarkers in non-Hodgkin lymphoma

Detail:

My research focusses on discovery and validation of pathologic correlates that would help resolve diagnostic and prognostic clinical challenges for patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Specifically, with the help of the Translational Research Initiatives in Pathology Laboratory, we are interested in utilizing automated immunomorphometric assessment of protein expression in tissue microarrays combined with DNA/RNA analysis of corresponding formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue as an approach to translational biomarker discovery and validation.


Clinical Interests
Hematopathology; Laboratory hematology
Detail:
Working in conjunction with hematologists to diagnose hematologic disorders is my primary clinical interest. As a part of this, performance characterization of clinical laboratory diagnostics and procedures has been an area of focus.
