Departments & Organizations
I was born in India and am the first to go to medical school in my father's family. I was 17 years old and was overwhelmed by my patients' desperate and immediate need for help. I realized I could remain more objective and focused if I practiced pathology and helped the treating physicians understand the underlying mechanisms of disease, so treatments could be individualized. I am fascinated by cancer cells, their immortality and lethality. My interest is in detecting cancer, predicting their behavior and response to potentially lethal therapeutic agents. I am keenly interested in thyroid, salivary and head and neck cancers, in identifying their protein expression profiles and new targets for therapy.
