Research Abstract

My research covers the broad field of gastrointestinal, pancreatobiliary, and liver pathology. My primary areas of focus are small bowel neuroendocrine neoplasms and colorectal carcinoma. My group has shown that proper evaluation of mesenteric tumor deposits from small bowel neuroendocrine neoplasms is important for patient prognosis. I have published series on adenoma-like adenocarcinoma and micropapillary carcinoma of the colorectum, with intent to study much more rare subtypes in the future. My interests also include non-neoplastic conditions; I have authored manuscripts on PD-1 inhibitor colitis and massive gastric juvenile polyposis, among others.
