Our research is focused on lymphocyte proliferative disorders. We have identified a novel diagnostic entity of clonal B lymphocytosis and chromosomal translocation t(2;7) linking CDK6 to IGK locus in B-cell neoplasia. As part of NSERC Strategic network, we have been developing nanoparticle probes for targeting leukemia cells.

Transplantation remains to be one of the ultimate life-saving treatments for patients suffering from end stage organ/tissue failures. HLA lab is playing a major role in identifying suitable donors for allo transplantation.  My interest is to develop more clinical applicable assays to improvise, enhance and supplement the current assays and to look into the clinical outcomes based on the interpretation of various HLA lab testing data.

Human lung development is largely unknown and what is known has been interpreted from loss-of-function mouse models.  my research program goal is to advance our understanding of the molecular and cellular processes that drive human lung development and disease, leading to improved derivation of lung tissue from pluripotent stem cells, and translating into novel stem cell-derived therapies for lung diseases.

The research I am involved in is clinically oriented and concentrates on my area of surgical pathology expertise: breast pathology. My most recent work has concentrated on sentinel lymph nodes and breast carcinoma. Other ongoing research work includes the pathology of ductal carcinoma in situ and lobular neoplasia, and predictive biomarkers and breast carcinoma.
