Our laboratory characterizes breast and prostate cancer biomarkers that have diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Functional testing of these biomarkers is done to understand molecular mechanisms of human tumorigenesis. New molecular therapies arising from our mechanistic understanding of cancer development are tested in a clinically relevant patient-derived tumor xenografted mouse model.

Secondary Research Area: Genetics, Genomics & Proteomics

My research uses the tools of modern sequence-based genomics to discover the mutations that are present in the genomes of paediatric cancer patients, and to understand how these mutations alter the somatic transcriptome. I have a strong interest in sarcoma biology. I'm directly involved with the  introduction of cutting-edge genomics, such as whole genome sequencing, into clinical practice.

Clinical presentation and treatment outcome of chronic oral disease, periodontitis, is complicated by diabetes mellitus because of immune dysbiosis. My research is focused on elucidating the role of adaptive immune dysbiosis in periodontal disease and DM. Immunomodulation by use of specialized nano-carriers with cell-activators can overcome this challenge with significant improvements in healing and overall treatment outcome.
