Dr. Anna Yemelyanova


Assistant Professor, Pathology

Research Summary

My research interests include clinic-pathologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular characterization of endometrial cancer. I am currently studying various immunohistochemical markers that may assist in pathologic diagnosis of these tumors and further explore their pathogenesis. The other area of my interest concerns cervical cancer related to high risk human papillomavirus (HPV); I am investigating viral protein expression as potential biomarkers useful in diagnosis and clinical management of pre-malignant cervical lesions.
