He has ongoing research in prostate pathology and teaches residents and students. He is a member of the Institutional Review Board.

Research Interests
    My current research revolves around the importance of prostate cancer morphology with respect to outcome and radiologic correlations. This includes everything from:

  • refining the Gleason grading criteria (Journal of Urology, 2016;196(4):1076-81) and proposing incorporation of the cribriform pattern of cancer into diagnostic prostate pathology (The new realization about cribriform prostate cancer. Advances in Anatomic Pathology 2017, in press.)
  • correlations with molecular expression of important markers PTEN and p27 (PTEN and p27 loss)
  • racial disparity in expression of pro-inflammatory markers in prostate cancer
  • assisting Dr. Peter LaViolette (radiology) with histologic-radiologic correlation of prostate pathology (Predictive Cytological Topography (PiCT)
  • Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) gene as marker for prostate cancer; MIF gene polymorphisms which are associated with susceptibility and severity of prostate cancer. U.S. Patent No. 7,745,121.
  • assisting Dr. Marja Nevalainen with prostate tissue procurement for the study of STAT5 and related molecules
