Research Interests:

My research interests are in the fields of carcinogenesis, mutagenesis and gene expression. I am currently the Director of the Genomics Core Laboratory, which is a center for performing high-tech analysis of gene expression in prokaryotic and eukaryotic prepared specimens utilizing microarray technology.
