Research Summary

The optimal management of thyroid cancer is dependent on the assessment of the malignant potential of the individual tumor at presentation. Understanding the genetic mechanisms controlling thyroid tumor progression can provide valuable prognostic markers and potential therapeutic targets. Our research focuses on the changes in intracellular molecular pathways that lead to the progression of thyroid cancer. When these pathways are understood, specific drugs can be developed to block these changes. By comparing genomic differences between different thyroid cancers, our laboratory has identified genes that may play a role in determining their behavior. Furthermore, we have identified molecular factors that potentially promote thyroid cancer metastases. We are developing new strategies to target the genes associated with aggressive thyroid cancer behavior. By understanding the biology of individual tumors, we will be able to create personalized cancer treatment plans for our patients. I have joint appointments in Surgery and Biochemistry, and have been recruited to lead the endocrine surgery research program.

Research Interests

Our laboratory has been interested in studying the molecular pathogenesis of thyroid carcinoma, specifically trying to identify molecular factors which can help predict thyroid tumor progression and potentially serve as therapeutic targets.
