Prostate cancer is the most common non-cutaneous cancer of the American male population, therefore, identifying new small molecules and therapeutic targets are active areas of research.

My research interests lie in stem cell and regenerative medicine. I am interested in microenvironmental effects on stem cells and/or cancer cells.
