I was born in India and am the first to go to medical school in my father's side of the family. I was 17 years old at the time, straight out of high school 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. From the start, I have been fascinated by cancer cells, their immortality and lethality. My interest is in detecting cancer, predicting their behavior and response to therapeutic agents, many of which are harmful to the patients. My current practice and work is focused on thyroid, salivary and head and neck cancers, in identifying their protein expression profiles and new targets for therapy.
