Clinical Expertise and Research Interests:

Clinical expertise in treating peritoneal cancers stemming from gastrointestinal and gynecological origins, such as ovarian and colorectal cancer, and cancers of the appendix and small intestine. Research interest focuses on using proteomics-based approaches to determine functionally significant signaling nodes within the tumor and its microenvironment using in vitro-based cell culture and co-culture systems. Laboratory interests also include understanding the c-MET axis in the tumor microenvironment in ovarian cancer, as well as the biology of mucinous neoplasms of ovarian/appendiceal and colonic origins.
