The research I am involved in is clinically oriented and concentrates on my area of surgical pathology expertise: breast pathology. My most recent work has concentrated on sentinel lymph nodes and breast carcinoma. Other ongoing research work includes the pathology of ductal carcinoma in situ and lobular neoplasia, and predictive biomarkers and breast carcinoma.
