Biography

I was born in India and am the first person to go to medical school in my father's family. I was 17 when I entered medical school, and was overwhelmed by my patients' desperate and immediate need for help. I realized I could remain more objective and focused if I practiced pathology and helped the treating physicians understand the underlying mechanisms of disease, so treatments could be individualized. I am fascinated by cancer, the immortality of its cells and its lethality. My interest is in recognizing cancer, predicting their behavior, lethality and response to potentially lethal therapeutic agents. With the explosion of cancer genetics, genotype-phenotype correlation is of great interest to me.
