Summary

My main interest is cancer etiology and survival and my research has two closely related foci. The first focus is inflammation and immune response, as measured by circulating, tissue, and genetic biomarkers, and gastrointestinal cancers. My second focus is the role of aspirin and other non-steroidal inflammatory drugs in colorectal cancer.
