Research Interests

My research interests are:

  • Human Breast Cancer – isoforms of MUC-1 in human breast cancer for diagnosis, prognosis and treatment
  • Vaccination against human breast cancer
  • Interactions between MUC-1 expressing tumor cells and the microenvironmental factors such as immunocytes and chemokines
  • Developing MUC-1 monoclonal antibodies for breast cancer treatment
  • Monoclonal antibodies for the study of ATM structure/function relationship
