My clinical research interests extend to several areas of urologic cancer, but are especially focused on prostate and bladder cancer. We have several ongoing research efforts directed at the development of novel prostate and bladder tumor markers. These include both translational projects in collaboration with the Departments of Pathology and Public Health Sciences and multi-institutional clinical trials. In addition, we are studying the quality of life outcomes following radical surgery and radiotherapy for prostate cancer and the use of alternative medicine in these patients.

 

Clinical Research in Prostate Cancer

In addition to my laboratory / basic science interests, I have an interest in translational and clinical research as pertains to prostate cancer. We have ongoing research efforts directed at the evaluation of molecular prognostic markers of cancers. In addition, we are studying the quality of life outcomes following radical surgery and brachytherapy for prostate cancer. Many of these projects complement well my basic science (laboratory) research

Clinical Research in Bladder Cancer

In addition to my laboratory / basic science interests, I have interests in clinical research as pertains to bladder cancer. We have ongoing research efforts directed at the evaluation of prognostic markers of bladder cancer progression in collaboration with the Department of Pathology. In addition, we are interested in developing novel modifications to the orthotopic neobladder operation to increase its availability to a larger number of patients and lessen its side effects. Some of these projects complement well my basic science (laboratory) research
