Research and Clinical Interests

My clinical expertise is pathological diagnosis of genitourinary disease, including prostate, bladder and kidney malignancy. My research focuses on the discovery and validation of the diagnostic and prognostic markers for genitourinary malignancy.  I have authored over 100 research articles and book chapters. I have co-edited several textbooks, including Genitourinary Pathology and Prostate Biopsy Interpretation. I currently serve on several editorial boards, including Modern Pathology.
