Research overview

Metabolism and Biomarker Discovery Lab. My research is focused on identifying specific metabolic alterations in cancer that can be exploited for biomarker discovery. We use LC-MS-based metabolomics and proteomics approaches to identify novel biomarkers for Hepatocellular Carcinoma, Soft Tissue Sarcoma, and Esophageal Cancer.
