Research Interests

In addition to my collaborative research with extramurally funded investigators, I primarily conduct retrospective, translational-type research on gynecologic tract and breast neoplasms. Over the years, we have conducted extensive investigations on myriad aspects of endometrial carcinoma, precancerous lesions of the gynecologic tract, mesenchymal neoplasms of the uterus, the molecular basis of gynecologic and breast neoplasia, and gynecologic cytopathology, among others. In recent years, my efforts have centered on clear cell carcinoma, a rare histotype of endometrial carcinoma.
