Primary Appointment in Pathology; Secondary Appointment in Gynecology & Obstetrics

My research interests have involved clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical studies of epithelial and non-epithelial tumors of the ovary and fallopian tube, including metastatic mucinous tumors in the ovary, ovarian sex cord-stromal tumors, and serous tubal intraepithelial carcinoma (STIC). Currently, I am in the process of investigating serous borderline tumors of the ovary (atypical proliferative serous tumor and non-invasive low-grade serous carcinoma) using a large population-based cohort from Denmark. Multiple studies from this project will focus to clinicopathologic and molecular aspects of these tumors, including long-term behavior of the subtypes of serous borderline tumor, criteria for implants, potential application of mutational analysis of KRAS/BRAF for determining prognosis, and molecular comparison of serous borderline tumors and their subsequent serous carcinomas.
