Research/Clinical Interest
Title
Description
My research efforts have predominantly involved collaborative clinico-pathologic studies in areas ranging from minor salivary gland tumors to liver pathology and tumor marker studies of breast carcinoma and malignant melanoma. Currently, my principal areas of clinical and research interest are cytopathology (particularly fine needle aspiration biopsy), pulmonary pathology,and hepatic pathology (particularly transplant pathology).
