Our main research interest is the pathogenesis of ovarian cancer. Studies ranged from morphologic and immunohistochemical comparisons of endometriosis with atypical endometriosis and associated neoplasia, to investigating the nuclear membrane pore complex in ovarian cancer, via electron microscopic and molecular biologic techniques. These exciting studies are ongoing and students are encouraged to participate.
