Research Summary

My research interests are in thoracic oncology and genetic drivers of early-stage lung adenocarcinoma, the role of systems genetics in cancer development, small molecule drug development and preclinical testing of novel therapeutics. I have a specific interest in semi-solid lung lesions and studying the differences between premalignant ground glass tumors and small, solid early-stage lung adenocarcinoma. I will employ my clinical background and education in thoracic surgery and thoracic oncology to help translate our basic science research discoveries into clinically relevant diagnostic assays and potential therapeutics.
