Research and Clinical Interests
My clinical interest is mainly in cytopathology including exfoliative and aspiration cytology. I am also actively involved in general pathology sign out. My research interest is in endocrine pathology. I am collaborating with the department of Endocrine Surgery to investigate the new diagnostic tools in different endocrine neoplasms.
