Research Focus

  • Cancer Biology, Genetics, metabolism, Biochemistry, Psychological disorders, Medical education.
  • I am specifically interested in genomics and proteomics of AML as well as chemotherapy resistance, molecular mechanisms underlying different diseases such as AML and other cancers as well as cardiovascular diseases and metabolic disorders.
  • I am interested in studying inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein. I am also interested in medical education, student psychology and the outcome of different teaching methodologies.
