I am interested in understanding molecular mechanisms behind high-grade serous ovarian cancer, which is the most lethal type of epithelial ovarian cancer. Our reseach focuses on two main themes: genomic alterations such as gene fusions and development of innovative diagnostic tools. Our ultimate aim is to improve patient survival by 1) developing biomarkers / marker panels for early detection of HGSOC, 2) finding predictive markers enabling personalized therapies, and 3) characterizing new potential drug targets for personalized HGSOC treatment.
