Research and Clinical Interests

My primary clinical interest is the surgical and molecular pathology of urologic neoplasms. My translational work focuses on integrating traditional pathologic diagnostic categories with information derived from new molecular techniques. My basic research work addresses the function of the telomerase enzyme in human cells, with a particular focus on the development of new single cell assays for mapping enzyme activity in situ.
