Personal profile

Research Interests

My major research interests are on identification of molecular biomarkers that are associated with tumor growth and progression in benign and malignant uterine smooth muscle tumors. In addition, I am interested in characterization of the role of microRNAs in the pathogenesis of benign and malignant tumors in women's reproductive organs through regulation of the target gene expression.
