- I am mainly interested in:
1. Carcinogenesis - This is done mostly in collaboration with researchers from Winship Cancer Institute. The tumors under study include breast carcinoma, prostate carcinoma and non-small cell lung carcinoma.
2. Informatics - This is done in collaboration with Dr. Vijay Varma from our division at the VAMC. The goal is to improve reporting of specimens to facilitate data mining.
My signout responsibilities at the VAMC include autopsy pathology, surgical pathology and cytopathology.
