Carcinoma, Papillary; Graves Disease; Hyperthyroidism
I am currently working in collaboration with pediatric and endocrine surgery on clinical outcomes after definitive therapy for Graves disease in children and on establishing a retrospective clinical database for patients with autoimmune thyroid disorders as well as thyroid cancer. I also work with endocrine pathology on molecular analysis of pediatric papillary thyroid carcinoma and correlation with clinical phenotypes and outcomes.
