Research Topic:

My basic, translational, and clinical research has been on the mechanisms of colorectal carcinogenesis and approaches for prevention and early detection of colorectal cancer. Earlier mechanistic studies focused on the regulation of glycosylation in colonic epithelium. My laboratory focused more recently on prostaglandin synthesis and inflammation in the colonic microenvironment.
