Current Research and Scholarly Interests
My recent research efforts are currently focused in the field of applications of immunohistology to the diagnosis of human neoplasms. This work is predominantly aimed at characterizing markers for the identification of non-lymphoid neoplasms and at establishing criteria for their evaluation in diagnostic situations. Examples of these projects have included the identification of CD34 in gastrointestinal stromal tumors and solitary fibrous tumors, studies of the phenotypes of cutaneous tumors such as atypical fibroxanthomas and desmoplastic melanomas and evaluation of markers for types of carcinoma. We have several similar studies currently ongoing.
