Dermatology; Epidermis; Pathology; Skin Neoplasms; Neoplasms, Adnexal and Skin Appendage; Vascular Neoplasms
I am studying skin cancer, particularly squamous cell carcinoma and keratoacanthoma. I also participate in a multidisciplinary vascular conference and inherited kidney cancer program.
Specialized Terms: Adnexal tumors; Benign and malignant epidermal tumors; Vascular tumors
Extensive Research Description
I tend to focus on how to distinguish between diseases and disorders that may present in a similar fashion clinically and/or microscopically. I have published papers as well as books in clinical dermatology and dermatopathology on such subjects.
