RESEARCH. My primary research focuses on the application of genomic technology in the assessment of solid tumors and hematologic malignancies. I work closely with our clinical collaborators in combining new medical content with emerging technologies, addressing specific needs for test development, technology adaptations and clinical validation of the assays before they can be used in a clinical setting. Our group has developed and implemented several comprehensive genomic profiling assays that are unique, providing un-paralleled capabilities in support of routine clinical care, research and clinical trials. As a molecular pathologist and hematopathologist, I also have shared interests in both solid tumor and hematologic malignancies and maintain active research collaborations in both fields. In solid tumors, I concentrate primarily on lung cancer and the study of genetic alterations driving neoplastic development, their assessment, targetability, and acquired resistance mechanisms following targeted therapies.
