Research Interest
My research interest has been focused on diseases of the lung. Previously I studied oncogene-driven lung cancers and drug resistance to targeted therapies. Currently, I am interested on lung’s extracellular matrix (ECM) composition and dynamics during tissue injury, repair, cancer and fibrosis with the goal of identifying biomarkers and novel therapies for clinical applications.
