Research interests

I am interested in research with a direct clinical impact aimed at improving patient’s quality of life.

I am providing general pathology support to early phase clinical trials for patients with advanced cancer under the lead of Prof Tim Meyer.The aim of the project is to better define predictive biomarkers for patients with cancer.
