Research Summary

My primary research interest is the investigation of serum tumor markers for the early detection, diagnosis, staging, and monitoring of cancer. Our focus is to develop new tumor markers and to develop new applications for existing markers in order to increase their clinical utility. We are primarily studying markers for prostate cancer and ovarian cancer. Other research interests include immunoassay automation and intraoperative hormone measurements.
