Diversity is what attracted me to LMP. Diversity in the types of research conducted, where they are conducted and the diseases that are being investigated. It is this depth and breadth, and the interaction with a broad range of faculty members, clinicians and scientists that has helped me progress in my career. In addition, LMP’s Summer Research Program was instrumental in developing my interest in research.

My main research focuses on identifying novel biomarkers for ovarian cancer in the blood by using high-throughput technologies. These markers may play a role in early diagnosis, prognosis, monitoring disease progression or risk stratification in ovarian cancer.
