    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse Overview
    My research interests include genetic alterations in skin tumors and familial skin diseases, with the aim of identifying genes relevant for understanding cutaneous and tumor biology, improving diagnostic methods, and identifying novel therapeutic targets. An ongoing theme has been gene discovery. This includes the identification of FH mutations in hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer (HLRCC) and PLCD1 mutations in hereditary white nail syndrome. Additionally, as a practicing dermatopathologist/dermatologist, my research aims at identification of markers of melanomagenesis to improve diagnostic accuracy of melanocytic tumors. This effort has resulted in the detection of NF1 mutations in desmoplastic melanoma.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
