Clinical and Research Background

My main research interest is in understanding pathogenesis of cancer using zebrafish and mammalian experimental systems. My current research focuses on dissecting cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying pediatric embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, in particular the key events driving relapse and metastasis. My laboratory utilizes high-throughput chemical genetic and genomic approaches to identify key driver events of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. In addition, by imaging cellular processes in our transgenic zebrafish tumor models, we seek to dissect key cellular events leading to relapse and metastasis.

My clinical interest is in bone and soft tissue pathology.
