Personal Statement

I am Professor of Clinical Pathology and Laboratory Medicine with major interest in thoracic pathology. I am an active member of each patient's clinical team and participate in weekly tumor boards and Clinico-pathologic conferences addressing treatment algorithms and development of optimum case management strategies. Weill Cornell is one of the largest centers offering a wide range of pathological services for the analysis of cardiac tissue, particularly endomyocardial biopsy specimens from patients with cardiomyopathy. In addition to routine assessment of biopsy tissue, we do immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence when necessary and electron microscopy to establish an accurate diagnosis and guide the design of the most effective plan of treatment. I also work closely with the rheumatologists caring for patients with vasculitides as well as cardiac and pulmonary involvement in autoimmune diseases.
My major research and clinical interests include pathogenesis and diagnosis of lung cancer, non-neoplastic lung diseases including pulmonary hypertension, atherosclerotic vascular diseases and cardiomyopathies. I work closely with the thoracic surgeons and basic scientists exploring the influence of tumor microenvironment on lung cancer pathogenesis.
In addition to clinical care, I am also involved in teaching cardiac and pulmonary pathology to the second year medical students.
