Thoracic / GU Translational Research Interests

In the area of genitourinary pathology, our research interests focus on diagnosis, particularly tissue diagnosis, of urologic malignancies, including prostate cancer, kidney cancer, testis cancer, and bladder cancer. Investigations are also directed toward discovery and development of immunophenotypic and molecular genetic markers of these malignancies. Specific areas of interest include: Active surveillance in kidney and prostate malignancies, evaluation of vascularity and expression of drug targets in renal cell carcinoma, and diagnostic and prognostic markers in renal cell carcinoma

 

 

 

In the area of thoracic pathology, our research interests focus on histologic and molecular characterization of non-small cell lung cancers. Specific areas of interest include:

Distinct and Overlapping Pathways of Fibrosis and Emphysema in Cigarette Smokers, Role of Angiogenic Agents in Alveolar Maturations and injury 

Novel Immunologic Effects of Semaphorin 7A in IPF, YKL-40 In Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Kidney Transplantation 

Significance of Circulating Semaphorin 7a+ve cells in Pulmonary Sarcoidosis 

and Generation of a molecular atlas of lung development

Biography

My major interests are in diagnostic and experimental lung pathology.

I entered the MD-PhD program at Yale School of Medicine in 1979. My PhD was with Donal Murphy on a novel antigenic structure within the murine MHC. Upon graduation I trained in Anatomic Pathology under the supervision of Dr. Juan Rosai and simultaneously completed a post-doctoral fellowship with Richard Flavell, Chair of the section of Immunobiology, with a focus on T cell tolerance.

For many years, I worked on various murine...
