Research Interests

My research interests lie in the field of biomedical research specifically focuses on (a) chemoprevention and experimental therapeutics, and (b) identification of molecular targets for intervention. My long-term research goal is to define the critical molecular and biochemical events as well as fundamental cancer driver pathways in the process of cancer development and progression that will help us to identify the targets for disease management.

Using natural resources and cutting-edge scientific knowledge, I want to identify and develop new molecules, approaches, and strategies that can ultimately be translated from the bench to the bedside for the prevention and/or treatment of cancer, specifically for skin and prostate cancer.
