My research focus includes identification of novel biomarkers in ovarian cacner for early detection and prevention. We have investigated the role of micrRNA from blood as a biomarker for ovarian cancer, and have developed a vaccine targeting pro-angiogenic molecules in this disease. Furtheromre, we are investigating the role of the TGF beta pathway in cervical cancer susceptibility as well as the ability of lyopholized black raspberries to prevent cervical cancer.
