Description of Research Activities: The major focus of my research is on genitourinary cancers, in particular on kidney and prostate cancers. I have conducted multiple research studies including prognostic factors and molecular biomarkers in genitourinary cancer. I have a special interest in the investigation of the kallikrein family of genes in order to detect their potential role as cancer biomarkers for kidney cancer.
